Besides a market at the open square, Oulu has a historic market hall that was opened in 1901. The city councel of Oulu decided to build an indoor market due to tightened food safety regulations. Specifically butchers had to move to the covered market.
Spread over 2 aisles are 62 wooden shop stalls that sell everything from food (meat/fish/bread etc.). clothes, handicrafts, and more.
