In Kajaani, the market trade has a long history; its roots go back to the 17th century, when the famous winter market was held in Kajaani. The market place became regular in May 1899. At that time it was used in the Town Hall Square, which over time became too small. The pipe trade moved to the current Market Square in the summer of 1914, when the area was leveled and paved.
