Hötorget (Old Haymarket) & Kungshallen - Stockholm, Sweden

When I travel aboard, I like to see local market. I think local market reflects traditional and unique style of that country. Food market here is clean and lively. Old Haymarket does not sell the street food but sell fresh vegetable and fruit. 

Hötorget (Old Haymarket) 

From metro station, short walk to market. Mostly, the products are fresh vegetable and fruit such as asparagus, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, grape. Although each shop sell same product, the price are different so please check the price before decision making. Some shops also give some discount. I bought strawberry 3 trays, the price was 50 SEK. 

There are a lot fresh fruit and vegetable, looks yummy.
On Sunday, there are flea market in this area. 


Hötorget T-bana Station (T19, Green Line), one station from T-Centralen station.

Food market is very close to metro station.

Hötorget T-bana Station has more than exit. If you see Adidas at the opposite site, turn left and you will see the market and Food court is located next to Adidas shop.


Kungshallen is opposite side of Haymarket. It is a foodcourt, has 3 floors. There are various food, also Asian food, including Thai food. Menu mostly in swedish language but some words are similar to English so can guess. One word that I see often is "kyckling" means chicken. If really don't understand, can ask staff. In Sweden, people can speak English well.  
Opening Hours: 09:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m.

I ordered Thai Food. This dish was 95 SEK (If I'm right). Taste was delicious, very close to Thai food in Thailand. You can order food for taking home as well. Buying food or other things in Sweden can use credit card, pin code is a must. The toilet here is clean but require the code so once you get the receipt after buying some food here, don't throw it away. The code is on receipt (bottom). Toilets do not separate room for men and women. Don't be surprise!

Hötorgshallen is food hall, located next to Haymarket. The shops sell seafood, meat, cheese, butter and etc.There are few restaurants here. I did not buy anything, just looked around because I was full after had lunch at Kungshallen and bought some fruit at old haymarket.
