Teurastamo Christmas Market will be held on 16–17 December, featuring a record-breaking number of vendors

Teurastamo will once again celebrate Christmas in advance for a whole weekend, on Saturday 16 December 10am–5pm and on Sunday 17 December 11am–4pm. This year, the Christmas Market will offer the goods of more than 70 vendors; unique Christmas gifts, tasty Christmas treats, Christmas trees. Naturally, the traditional Finnish star signers, Tiernapojat, will also be there.

Last year, nearly 10,000 guests visited the hugely popular Christmas Market during the weekend. The Teurastamo people will be taking part in the Christmas Market again, and Flavour Studio will be filled with the inviting atmosphere of an artesian chocolate bazaar, Suklaarasia, from 10am to 4pm. The Teurastamo Christmas Market is the perfect place to find original gifts, tasty food and beverages as well as a hefty amount of joyful Christmas spirit.

The showcase of Jädelino ice cream parlour will be filled with delicious, Christmassy ice cream flavours, and they will also be selling a selection of Italian panettones and marmalades. Helsingin kahvipaahtimo coffee roastery will be roasting up a delicious, flavourful Christmas blend. Restaurant Palema will be serving lunch for the hungry visitors on Saturday 11am–3pm. In Kellohalli, Asmi will be selling products made of recycled inner tubes, and Christmas cards will be available for purchase from several vendors, among them KehvoladesignHiilit Illustrations and Pirita Tolvanen. Bags and accessories will also be sold at the event, and their materials vary from used coffee sacks to paper. As last year, the beautiful design lights made of corrugated board by Andbros, as well as high-quality linen products by Aapiste, will again be available at the market. The market will also offer food products for all tastes. The traditional British pies by Pie Witch and the Hungarian pepper sausages by Feri’s Sausages will add some international flavour to the selection. On Saturday, the Market will spread out into the premises of Perho Culinary, Tourism and Business College.

A new operator, Moko Market will soon move into Teurastamo, and they will set up their boutique in building number 5, right next to the Teurastamo gate. The Christmas Market will be a great opportunity to find out more about the newcomer, Moko Market. In addition to this, twenty unique entrepreneurs with their one-of-a-kind products will set up shop in the premises for the duration of the Market.

Events and workshops for the whole family in the Teurastamo yard

Kirjaverstas at Teurastamo features a great selection of books and products by different illustrators, perfect for gifts. There will also be programme for children on both days: Creators of Yö and Vesi nonfiction books, author Laura Ertimo and illustrator Satu Kontinen, will hold a snowflake workshop for children and Mari Kätkä will perform Christmassy music and songs from the musical fairytale Hilla ja Liisi on Saturday from 12 noon to 2pm and on Sunday from 2pm to 4pm. Glögi will also be served on both days!

The centrepiece of the Teurastamo area is, naturally, the large, impressive Christmas tree, which will be decorated by the workshop participants. In the yard, blacksmiths Eveliina Halonen and Kalle Havola will be showing off their skills. Kumpula choir will perform for the market-goers on Saturday at 1pm, and Paavali congregation will hold a Tiernapojat star singers performance at Kellohalli on Sunday at 1pm.
