Fare is a new magazine exploring city culture through food, history, and community.

Fare introduces its readers to a single city and lets its locals do the talking: taking you down backstreets and through forgotten histories, exploring neighbourhoods and local institutions, and doing more than just taste the food on offer. Fare connects armchair travelers with immersive and nuanced stories from cities around the world, and serves as a kind of roadmap for those who are ready to make the actual trip to see things for themselves.

In this issue:
Helsinki is a city at its height.

It is also something of an anomaly. Culturally, it is a partial amalgamate of its neighbors—and former rulers—in Sweden and Russia, but as the capital of a young and independent Finland, it is full of nascent pride and positivity. It rejoices in an entrepreneurial spirit and a belief that new projects and new legacies can be made here, even as older ones are preserved and celebrated.

While some cities in Scandinavia exude a “Nordic cool,” in Helsinki, there’s a collective nonchalance, and a widespread pragmatism. Helsinki’s streets are filled with art nouveau design, with the work of celebrated Finnish modernists also very much on display. Even now designers, artists, makers, chefs, and hip-hop stars embolden the city’s claim to a vibrant lifestyle.

In Issue 2: Helsinki, prepare to explore:

  • The sweet smells and folkloric past of a Karelian bakery
  • The island of Seurasaari, where deep in the woods you’ll find a centuries-old village, restored from along Finland’s eastern borders
  • The old-school gems of Helsinki’s restaurant scene, institutions with classic Finnish fare and interior, unchanged in nearly a century
  • An enigmatic bar with famous patrons where Soviet-era ideals still live
  • The torikahvilat, the orange tents of Helsinki’s market squares, with their famous breakfasts and apple-mash doughnuts
  • The history of the naval fortress of Suomenlinna, one of the largest in Europe, situated across the Wolf Isles

Specs: 170mm x 240mm, lithographically printed on Arctic matt and Cyclus Offset stock; perfect bound. Approximately 190 pages.
