This Christmas market has a high level of quality and it is a hallmark of the Great Square Christmas market since its beginning in 1915.
All products are Swedish and vary between wildlife products, such as smoked sausage and fish, Sami handicrafts from northern Sweden, ceramics from the south of Sweden, a variety of handicrafts in wood and metal, sheepskin, ironwork, jewelery and costume jewelery, Christmas decorations, marzipan, honey, cheeses, spices, pour bread and much, much more. In addition, hot mulled wine with gingerbread are served together with waffles and candy.
One product that is always on my shopping list is wool soles, a perfect Christmas gift for yourself to survive cold ground.
While you are here, take a stroll along Västerlånggatan towards Gamla Stan subway station. Here you can find Swedish arts and crafts and other small boutiques. Take a coffee break at one of the old towns basement cafés, such as Chokladkoppen, the chocolate cup, based on Stortorget.
