Yesterday I posted this picture and asked if you know what’s inside. I thought it was one of those tents the workers put over manholes in the winter or during rain so they can do their work without also having to fight the elements quite so much.
Today: the Great Reveal!
On this particular day, the outdoor market place was deserted but for this one fish seller. Three men were actually working in the tent, with a lot of beautiful fresh fish on the counter. This gentleman is the fish king. If I had been staying in a place with a kitchen (rather than in a hotel) I would have been tempted to buy some of that gorgeous salmon.
If you go to Helsinki in summer, you won’t believe that there was only one stand open in the market! Normally, even in winter, it’s a busy place.
