Medieval weekend in Espoo!

Crossing the river to access the yard
Every year since 2008 during the 3rd weekend of September, the Syysmatin markkinat (Matti's autumn market) is organized in the yard of the medieval church of Espoo. Craftspeople are selling their best pieces of work but also demonstrate their know-how: blacksmith, goldsmith, florist, knitter and so on. Some strands are selling some delicious home made food such as crepes and cakes. For children, some farm animals (sheeps, chickens, ponies, etc) are also present. Free entry.
