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!

Scandi tip #4: Swedish Christmas Market

Every year before Christmas the Swedish Church arrange a Christmas Market in the church in London. This church is more like a regular (but large) house and houses the actual market, hot dog stand and café.

I try to go every year as it puts me in the Christmas spirit. At the market you can find anything from tree decorations, to Swedish candles, to groceries. And yes, it is of course the latter I am most interested in.

The market starts on Thursday next week (see above) and the entry fee is £1 for all three days. The address is:

The Swedish Church in London
6 Harcourt Street
United Kingdom

Maybe I’ll see you there?
