For over a century Vasa Market Hall has been serving people as an essential gatheringplace and market in Vaasa. We, the merchants are very proud of our gothic style hallbuilding and its athmosphere ringing with history. Vasa Market Hall is one of the oldest in Finland, it is also protected by museum laws.
Vaasan Kauppahalli's site was owned over hundred years by Halli Oy but was sold to property investment company vvt (www.vvtkiinteistosijoitus.fi/
) in 2016. Halli Oy was founded by Oskar Rewell, A W Stenfors and K H Majantie in 1900. The first site to be purchased by Halli Oy was the plot in the junction of Vaasanpuistikko 18 / Kauppapuistikko 13. This was the site where the Market Hall was built according to the designs of architect A W Stenfors, in order to make a modern tradingplace in Vaasa.
The Market hall was built in two separate sections of which the first, the one adjacent to Vaasanpuistikko stood clear in 1902, the second one, closer to Kauppapuistikko in 1927. From 1963 and on, the two halves have been joined together, making a free passage between the upper and the lower section of the Market Hall.
