Christmas Market at Skansen
If you're in Stockholm in December, I heartily recommend going to the Christmas market at Skansen. Skansen is an outdoor museum and zoo - and it's always worth a visit.
Lots of different kinds of crisp bread. (To make your own, check out my recipes here and here.)
There's a lot to eat at the market. This stall served...
...elk! "A taste of Scandinavian wilderness", as they called it. It's a great-tasting meat, actually!
Sugared almonds. Always, always found at christmas markets, and I always buy them.
This stall sold different sorts of christmas-y drinks.
Skansen is gorgeous all year round, and it has old houses from different parts of Sweden.
One of few animals we met on this cold winter day.
