Normal market for fresh cut flowers, fruit and some commercial market goods like bags that are found all over the world for cheaper prices.

It's just a place you visit over and over and over if you live in Stockholm. Centrally located, many things close by.. The market with flowers and fruits is ok.. But the best place there is Hötorgshallen where you can find lots of good food..

In the evenings it is pretty quiet but during the day it is very busy with lots of stalls selling fruits, flowers, bags,etc. Good to visit if you are passing by or wish to get fruits but apart from this nothing special!

It's a small market place with lots of fruits and flowers, not that spectacular though. It's actually lots smaller than I expected. Still okay to go though.

The food booths were lovely, but the vendors calling out for attention were not. We purchased a cheap suitcase to replace a broken one. It was so cheap it fell apart and we tossed it when we arrived home.

We passed here numerous times, morning and night. It was fascinating to see the varying activities, from the colour and vibrancy of the weekday food market to the open space after the market had packed up for the day. A grand variety of foods are laid out, with the fruits and herbs & spices being particularly intense and attractive looking.... More

At first glance it was so beautiful and vibrant that we decided to take a look at the wonderful cut flowers and fresh looking fruits. The flowers were beautiful but the fresh looking fruit! The seller's are mainly migrants who are looking for over excited tourists. The price offered can vary in a matter of second and not all of... More

Hötorgshallen has everything a tourist look for in Stockholm talking about things you can eat! Typical food from all the world. Typical swedish food, elk, reindeer etc. You can get just a little piece to try it! Really recommend this beautiful foodmarket for any tourist in my city!

I hunt out markets or loppis (in Swedish) and the good thing is that the Hotorget loppis seems to be open rain or sunshine which is great. 90% of the vendors are regulars but if you want to hunt through a miscellany of junk to find a treasure (which I love doing ) this place is fun. Having said that... More
