Swedish markets may not be as famous as France’s or neighboring Denmark’s world-renowned flea markets but for those who know where to look there are treasures to be found, especially in Stockholm. Take a deep dive into the the Swedish capital’s meandering streets and find food, clothes, and sundry items with our guide to Stockholm’s best markets.
Located in Södermalm, the small but not too crowded Bruno Vintage Market is the go-to place for vintage, as the name indicates. Most of what is on sale is clothing but there is a decent selection of jewelry and household items at reasonable prices too, and of course it all varies day to day. Even the sellers are not always the same. Don’t forget to try to haggle, some sellers might agree to lower their prices so it is definitely worth a try.

For something a lot more sophisticated, head to the high end Östermalm district where this gorgeous covered food market has been active since the late 1880s. Named as one of Jamie Oliver’s favorite places in Stockholm, it’s packed with prestigious family establishments, restaurants or stalls, with high quality ingredients to take home, including some traditional Swedish delicacies and amazing fresh seafood. It’s also worth going there just for the building, a red brick structure with medieval-style spires that was hailed for its design, way ahead of its time in its use of a cast iron frame.

Söderloppis / Nackaloppis
This flea market features the usual vintage clothes and household items, but also records, toys, and even taxidermy. It doesn’t seem to be a market for professionals but rather a place that locals use as a yard sale; prices are cheap and sellers are rarely the same every week. Located on the island of Kvarnholmen, it is only open in the summer on Saturdays and Sundays and carries a 10 kronor cover charge, more than worth it, in our opinion. There is also a bar area where visitors can have a drink and people watch at their leisure.
Address: Mjölnarvägen 1, Nacka, Sweden
