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.

For many years now I have been helping with the Christmas dinners here at Djurby Gård, and not going to the Fyris Market until April, but this year no dinners, so I do the markets when the weather is good enough. Today is the first of advent and yesterday was the first of the popular advent markets. There are many holiday season markets all over the place. I probably should try some of the other markets, but I went to my usual Fyristorg Market. 



The weather was cold and windy and alot of people stayed home or were at other markets, and all I had was pumpkins and pickles, but sales were very good.

I’m back at Fyris Farmers Market after 3 weeks at other markets. It’s grey and drizzly, but it’s going pretty good. 

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. 

Fyristorg (Fyris Market in Uppsala) today. My first market this year. 

I have some pumpkins left and of course all the pickles including miso. 


There are a few flakes of snow in the air. Hope the costomers dare come out in this weather.  

All of a sudden there is lots and lots of vegies. 


And a good day at the market in Uppsala (fyristorg).

After a few tired days of straightening up after the wonderful big garden party, things are are getting back to normal – weeding, building and harvesting. Dispite the drought, everything is growing bonkers. I picked my first bucket of pickling cucumbers. 

All set for lactic fermentation. 


Now for a day of harvesting for the market (Fyristorg) tomorrow. 

The first time at Fyris market (Fyristorg Uppsala) this year. 

  
I have s lot of lactic fermented vegetables, but also some scraggly pumpkins and potted plants. 

   
 

  
On my way to the saturday farmers market at Fyristorg in Uppsala. 

No car today, I filled up my sturdy japanese bamboo rucksack to go to the Fyris Torg farmers market in Uppsala this morning. 

  

As I stepped out the door, a flock of whooping cranes flew low over my garden and landed in the adjacent field, reminding me that I had forgotten my camera phone. Alas, I didn’t get a good close picture.

The basket holds quite a bit.
