A substantial portion of the grains needed for bread in Finland, and a great variety of vegetables and berries are grown in the region. Beef cattle, sheep, turkeys and other livestock are raised in the rural areas, game is hunted from the local forests, and fish and crayfish are taken from the region’s waters. You can purchase locally produced food directly from the marketplace or the farm shops. Local jams, juices and other delicacies can be found on the shelves of grocery stores.
