Farmer's market!


Continuation of our trip to Kragerø. 
As I  said in my last post, there was no snow when we arrived there and still no snow the day after. It came the next day:) 
Anyway, although the sun was shining, it was too cold.  My sister and I bought hot drinks from the Thai stand.

There were stands who sells used things for cheap prizes. Want something?

cute old doll

the dog was in the market too

In this area, they sold handmade products

knitted stuffs
'

santas, wool socks, potholders etc


 Same here. Sweaters too



They build a Sami tent in the center
''
crotheted things, jams, cards, soaps
The girl was selling her homemade cards, gift boxes and cacao with marsmallows.
I bought cacao with marsmallow:)

Paintings for sale and warm dresses for girls

woven carpets, painted stones, glass and honey in small container. They had honey soap which I bought one piece to try  because I heard the honey is good for the skin.


The most popular were the food stands. Thai food, paella, waffles. My sister and brother -in -law tried chicken barbecue from the Thai stand. I bought chicken soup. It was hot and good:)

the youth had done some experimenting

more woven carpets

A lady who was selling animals skins with furs


Anywas, we didn't stay long. It was too cold. My niece husband fetched us and drove us to their home where we would be celebrating my sister's golden years. An unusual and extra ordinary celebration which I am going to share later.

See you there:)

JOY

  7. Sounds like you all really were COLD that day... There's just nothing better than a hot beverage on a bitterly cold day!!!!

    Looks like the Farmers' Market had alot of great items for sale.... But--I don't blame you all for not staying very long...

    Merry Christmas.
    Hugs,

  10. How come there's no farmer's meat or fresh produce at your farmer's market?

  11. Hi Lily. I don't know Lily. Maybe there were just allowed to sell handmade products not meat or poultry:)
