An unusual Christmas Market in the south of Sweden

On Saturday I went to a very different kind of Christmas market. A man known from the Swedish version of the Antiques Roadshow, opened up his private home in Landskrona, in thesouth of Sweden to the public.

The market took place in his actual house (including the kitchen and living rooms), the courtyard, cellar and different outhouses. Yes, it was a rather large house. It was very cosy with Christmassy decorations everywhere, glögg (Swedish mulled wine) served in the courtyard, a café in the cellar as well as lots of vendors and some antiques.

We bought some lovely sourdough bread, herring and dilly prawn mayonnaise with us home and stopped for a hot chocolate/glögg pause to keep the cold at bay. Our last stop was the actual house, and I was utterly jealous when I entered his amazing large kitchen where they were making lussekatter (traditional saffron buns).

The tiles above the stove were amazing too!
