Good people´s market square
An idea of having Good people´s market square came from a local Junior Chamber International club in 1995. "Good people" means ordinary folk, you and me. You don´t have to be a movie star or a statesman to have a monument of your own. The market square was made in co-operation with Sysmä municipality. 2600 Sysmä residents have their palm prints on concrete plates, women have their left hand and men their right hand. Some families have their own plate. Each plate is numbered and has each person´s initials. All plates with numbers and names of people are saved on computor and can be found in Sysmä municipal office.
Former statesman Johannes Virolainen was a patron of this project.
In the summertime you´ll find local products here; vegetables, potatoes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, lingon berries, red-, black and white currant, mushrooms etc.
Some very special days like the Crazyest Saturday in early June and St. Olof Days during the last weekend in July give an extra flavor to our market life. Then we have hundreds of entrepreneurs from all over Finland selling their products.
