Calendar: Fall Market & Bleak Roe Festival

September 25th and 26th- The wonderful, outdoor cultural museum Skansen is having their yearly Fall Market this weekend. Take a trip back in time and experience a traditional Swedish fall market as they were 100 years ago. At the market you can buy everything from traditional textiles, woodwork and toys to honey, jams, vegetables and candy. There will be plenty entertainment in the form of song, dance, games and performers. The market takes place on both Saturday and Sunday 11am to 4pm. While you are there, take the opportunity to wander around the zoo and see the Scandinavian animals. Entrance costs 100 SEK (40 SEK for children and 80 SEK for seniors). Free entrance with the Stockholm Card. To get there: Bus 47 or a street car/tram from Normalmstorg or else the Djurgård ferry from Slussen or Nybroviken.

September 23rd to 29th- I have written earlier about all of the amazing fresh Swedish produce that can be found in menus this fall. One of these is bleak roe (löjrom in Swedish)... a tasty Swedish caviar from northern Sweden. A true Swedish delicacy! The restaurant Riche is having their annual Bleak Roe Festival (Löjromsfestivalen) this week... which means a menu filled with creative uses of the roe, besides the traditional toast with creme fraiche, onion and chives. The fishing season starts September 20th... so the roe will be at its freshest this week! Riche is located in the downtown area and is open for dinner Monday through Saturday. The closest subway is Östermalmstorg (red line).
