Humlegårdsgatan 3, Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm locals have long valued fresh, organic ingredients, and most of the city’s neighborhoods feature at least one saluhallar (market hall). One of the first of its kind, Östermalms Saluhall opened in 1888 in the posh Ostermalm nave and has been a Swedish icon ever since. The stunning brick structure houses vendors (many of which are family-owned and have been there since the food hall opened) selling regional specialties like pickled herring, smoked salmon and lingonberry and cloudberry preserves. Those looking for a full proper meal can stop at one of the market’s restaurants, like Lisa Elmqvist.
