Hakaniemi market hall
The loveliest place to buy food in Helsinki is Hakaniemi market hall. At the ground floor you can find meat, sausages, fish, bread, pastries, chocolate, olives, spices, vegetables, candies, you name it. On the second floor there are for example Marimekko (they usually have some outlet stuff too), yarn, buttons, cards, bead work, etc.
And by the way, the Hakaniemi market square, right next to the hall is the most genuine market place in Helsinki. No reindeer t-shirsts and other tourist crap, as they do at Kauppatori market place in the city center. And Hakaniemi is just one metro stop away from Kauppatori.
