Food during Camp Pixelache


Visitors to Camp Pixelache on Vartiosaari island should generally bring their own food & drinks, eating utensils and picnic equipment to the island. There is no infrastructure (shops, restaurants, cafes, etc) on Vartiosaari so everything that you would like to eat / drink should be brought along. The island has a few water taps for drinking water. You will be responsible to take all your waste materials off the island with you.

Pixelache is able to provide catering only for a limited amount of participants and we are unfortunately already fully booked.

Newcomers to Helsinki:

If you are visiting Helsinki from elsewhere, we recommend that you do your food shopping at Hakaniemi (e.g. before taking ferry), or at the K-Market next to Herttoniemi metro-station (if taking metro route).
