The Vanha kauppahalli (english: Old Market Hall) is the first and oldest market and department store in Helsinki. The Vanha kauppahalli was opened in 1888. The building was designed by Gustaf Nystrom. Today the hall is also a popular tourist attraction.

The market hall contains stalls from around 120 retailers. According to the statute, meat products, eggs, butter, cheese and vegetable products may be sold. At the turn of the century, part of the fish trade was also transferred to the hall. Since 1984 there have also been bistro and restaurant businesses in the market hall.
