It started out stormy with rain, thunder and lightning, later it got sunny but still with high winds.

A lot of people stayed home, but enough came to make it a fairly good market day.

The next market is the one at Wik Castle. It’s the biggest and best of the year. I thought I’d better start preparing earlier this year, so I started picking pumpkins.

I discovered that the rodents too have found them tasty, so I had better pick all now before they eat too many.

And get some better rodent prevention in place.

Today we are at the market at Enköpings trädgårds dag.

Every Saturday I’m at Fyris Market in Uppsala.

Now is the high point of the season.

A miso batch a week. This week a barley miso.

I plan to make 10 batches this season. Most of it for the markets.

+1 C, rain and wind. I Took off early to head back home.

The Wik Skördefest this year was a bit different. There was a new team of organisers with some new ideas – many more sellers over a wider area, more publicity and new positions for us old timers.

I was a bit dismayed, but the weather turned out great, the crowds were bigger and our main customers were able to find us, so sales were good,

especially for the fermented foods.

It’s a frosty saturday morning, but the weather is supposed to get sunny and warm today. I told my customers that I would start going to the market as soon as the weather started to get nice, so I packed my backpack basket with fermented foods, lunch and other paraphernalia,

And hop on the bus to Uppsala and Fyristorg for my first farmers market this year.

Here we are – not much, but a good start.

After missing it last year we were back at Kromsta Marknad for the forth time. 


The weather was great, lots of people and very good sales. 

Next weekend – Fermentations Festival!

The saturday market at Fyristorg is warming up. More and more seasonal flowers and vegetables are coming and starting to supersede the potatoes, sauerkraut and cinnamon rolls.
