After the early morning drizzle cleared up the day turned out great.

Good weather, good crowd and good sales.

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!

It looks like it will be a great day for the yearly Kromsta Market. Many years it has been terrible weather, but today the sun is shining, relatively warm and it’s calm. 

Here we are all set up just before opening.   

Today is Kromsta Market. A local yearly market at the Kromsta Farm Store, one farm over.


The weather is terrible, but typical for this clime and time of year. It’s always bad weather for this market, but quite a good crowd shows up anyway.


Gulash soup (with Kromsta produced beef) and coffee with home baked, warm you up nicely.


We have a little bit to sell too. Some vegetables, pumpkins, flowers, baked goods and fermented foods.


So no sales in Uppsala today.

No market today as the whole square, as well as the rest of the city, is taken up with preparations for the annual culture day in Uppsala.

I did pick a few greens for the lokal farm store at Kromsta.


Pumpkins and pickles for sale at the annual Kromsta Farm Market.

We also managed to find red and green chard, spinach, onions, turnips and some other roots and vegetables to take along as well. There were a few packages of 6 month rice miso.

And apple cakes.

With a little bit of rain, a little bit of sun, a little bit of wind and whole a lot of people, the sales were better than ever.


Vegetables ready for delivery to the local farm store Kromsta Lanthandel.

Lettuce, swiss chard, spinach, onions, dill, parsley, and pickles (dill-garlic, lactic acid, natural cucumber pickles). There are quite a few cucumbers ripening, so pictures and recipe for the pickles are coming soon.

These pickles are from last year and they are still excelent. We’ve had pickles for as long as three years and they keep their flavor very well. Lactic acid pickling is an ancient and natural preservation method.
