The Christmas market jointly organised by Kunnes Oy and Tuotepalvelut Tei-Ra at Rovaniemi’s Rinteenkulma market is gaining momentum by the day with the approach of Xmas.
The market began on November 12 at the precinct of the now defunct Anttila on the second floor of Rinteenkulma market and is scheduled to continue till the end of December, the organisers said.
Local traders including armatures have set up temporary stalls in the market producing a kaleidoscopic view. “More and more traders are coming with their products in the market,” Eila Henttunen of Kunnes Oy told Finnish News Network (FNN).

Henttunen said a significant number of traders have already set up stalls in the market and hoped to see a sharp rise in the number of visitors.
The traders have decorated their stalls with various commodities of Lapin features, ranging from wooden, woollen and reindeer-skin handmade crafts to homemade cake and berry jam, cosmetics, fabrics, ornaments, household articles, and books.
A beautifully designed Santa’s Hat is installed at the centre of the market to infuse the atmosphere with the spirit of Christmas.

“The location is very good and people from different strata are visiting and buying my products,” said Nina Uusipulkamo, a stall owner selling food and clothes. She termed the sales satisfactory.
Nina hopes more visitors will be coming during the remaining days and the traders will earn a good profit from the market.
Tapio Olaui Ovaskanen, another trader who has come with traditional ornaments for women, however, said he has not seen many customers so far, but the number of customers is increasing gradually.
He also observed that most of the people are visiting the market time and again, in addition to new visitors coming in.
One of the visitors said this year’s Christmas market looks better than the previous one, as the location is very good and the Rinteenkulma is a suitable place for the visitors.
Another visitor said she has visited the market several times during the last one month allured by a variety of products.
