Bremen Market

I visited my friend in Bremen and visited the many market stalls that they have in Bremen around Christmas time. The German’s really do Christmas well. None of the tacky tinsel we have in England (I like tinsel, but sometimes it can get a bit much!).

They have lovely handmade tree decorations, various food stalls, carousel rides and lots of make shift bars. They had one Market in the town which had a Medieval theme- all the staff were dressed up in Medieval clothing.

They had so many food and Gluhwien stalls- I was in heaven! Obviously I had to sample them to see if they were any good- which they were. Had my favourite the currywurst, and plenty of Gluhwein.

Swedish Market

Swedish Market

While in Stockholm I visited a market where the only things they seemed to be selling were pumpkins and mushrooms. At least we know they are not flying in produce Africa and only selling what is in season.

Walthamstow Market

IMG_7666

Walthamstow Market is the longest daily outdoor market in Europe, however is not the largest. Running almost the entire length of the street, approx 1 kilometer long, it has around 500 stalls selling everything from fruit and veg, to fabric, to household appliances. The produce at the fruit and veg stalls is always a good price, and much better quality than some street markets. It has quite a traditional cockney feel to it, but also incorporating all the influences from cultures such as Polish, Turkish and Afro-Caribbean.

On a Sunday a farmers market occupies the Town square at the top of the market, as the usual market only runs Tuesday-Saturday, with Saturday being at its busiest- often it is hard to get up the street against the flow of shoppers and browsers.
