I usually go here to pick up high quality meat and fish, but also occasionally for lunch! Not very interesting for a tourist unless you want have a rush hour lunch and feel the buzz. I can warmly recommend the fish restaurant downstairs, order the soup and a glass of wine and be there before 11:30 if you don't want... More

Big outdoor market which specializes in fruit and vegetables and flowers but has some clothing stalls . Worth a visit to take in the different aromas and colours and a vast array of mushrooms for some reason !

This market is very lively with a great variety of fresh products. More importantly, there are at least two significant buildings nearby. One is where the Nobel prizes are awarded and the other being the place where Greta Garbo sold tarts there before hitting Hollywood.

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
