Swedish Market Showcase: Hornstulls Marknad

via Hornstulls Marknad
This is the last stop on our virtual tour of Sweden - it's been so much fun!  And to finish up, here’s an awesome insider tip from our recently featured artist, Carolina Grönholm! She told us that those “in the know” will frequently visit the Hornstulls Marknad on Sundays during the summer. We liked the sounds of this and decided to do a little more digging to find the scoop on this market.

The Hornstulls Marknad has quickly become one of Stockholm’s favourite Sunday activities – it’s an easy and natural spot to meet up with friends, grab a coffee and enjoy a day out. The Marknad is open on Sundays from 11am until 5pm during the summer months. This outdoor street market is situated in the western part of the Södermalm district in Stockholm.

When the weather is nice, the market will stretch along Hornstulls Strand. If it happens to rain, the market is relocated under the bridge, which connects Södermalm to some of the southern suburbs of Stockholm.

If you are wondering what you might find at the market, the better question is “what won’t you find?”! From vintage and second-hand pieces, art, clothing, furniture and jewelry to food, drinks and fresh flowers – there is something for everyone to enjoy. The vendors at the market are always changing so it’s best to visit often!  Sounds to us like a perfect way to spend Sunday...
