Most of the cafés where having a christmas stand just outside the café like café husaren on Haga Nygata(Haga new street). This café is known for setting record in Guiness books of records for making the largest sold cinnamon bun. Off course you got a record for cinnamon roll that is 4 meters in diameter and similar but they are not sold as an eatable cinnamon bun. These wheigh around 500 g, are about 30 cm in diameter and are sold for 40 skr(4€, 3£, 4$)

Most popular stands where these with food. This is one with different kind of jam like cloudberry, blueberry and apples. Here you also find local sorts of honey.

christmas fair
Ann-Christine and her husband travel all around Sweden selling different kind of paper for wrapping presents, postcards, scrap booking and similar. We have had this proffession in Sweden for many centuries and are called knallar here in Sweden. I beleive the english word for knallar is knoll or cheap jack. You can read what this couple sell on in english

Anne-Christine told me that she thought this was too early to start a christmas market in Gothenburg and thinks it is better just using the 4 weekends before christmas.
