Ween Maan Wiljaa

With its cutesy old-fashioned W's instead of the more modern V, Ween Maan Wilja (the harvest of water and land) is best described as a harvest-type fall festival that intends for you to buy things. Food, handicrafts, more food, and a minimum of crap vendors. Lots of canned meats, baked goods, marinated garlic cloves. It will still be going on Sunday the 20th of September. Ween Maan Wilja is located down by the Paviljonki convention center.

A few photos from the day:

Baskets, both wood and plastic

Muikku (vendace) frying. Its just not a festival without muikku.

Fried muikku with vegetables and fried potatoes.

Wool and felt clothing from the crazy grandma clothing booth.

The only words you will need to survive in Finland.

Loimulohta ja pannukahvia. Flame broiled salmon and camp coffee.

The metrilaku (licorice by the meter) is always so cheerful looking.
