Some of the local goods are somewhat interesting but nothing that great. The square is small; the farmer's market part had some nice looking veggies and fruit. This was, for us, just a wallk-through on our way back to our cruise ship.

The plaza is right between the Cathedral and the harbor in Stavanger, you won't miss it especially is you arrive on a cruise ship. Not too many vendors and the merchandise were quite expensive. The beautiful view of the harbor can be seen here.

When walking around Stavanger you will most likely come across this lovely harbour spot. Great views across the water and the ships are tied up closely, great coastal atmosphere. Great photo ops as well.

Really nice area, with great views. I had a week working in Stavanger and every night would wander down here to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the views. Really impressive, great for a chill and relax.

Arguably our favorite place in the city, Torget is located by the Stavanger harbor; walking alongside the ocean you will find restaurants, bars and nightclubs, tourist-friendly shops and a remarkable view.
