Design District Market is a Christmassy sales event organized annually by Design District Helsinki. The event takes place in the heart of Helsinki and traditionally, on the same day as the Aleksanterinkatu Christmas Street is opened.
Design District Helsinki is a neighbourhood of design shops, galleries, artisan studios offering locally produced items, museums, restaurants and Finnish fashion labels. Design District Market brings them under the same roof for one day. The event presents jewellery, original illustrations, treatment gift cards, Finnish fashion, artisan chocolates, hats and caps and so much more. Yet, by attending the event, you’ll get to meet designers in person and have the opportunity to support local entrepreneurship in the creative sector.
