Today I set out to visit the new food hall that opened close to where I live. The food hall is just one of the things that is opened in this area lately. This is in a part of Stavanger called Stavanger East. It’s close to the centre of town and has very long been getting in more and into disrepair. But the last few years a lot has been done to reinvigorate this lovely part of town.
The food hall was packed with people, as you might expect with it just having it’s long awaited opening. And there sure are a lot of good local food and products in there.
Among those who have a stand at the food hall is a company who sell local vegetables, especially the ones that looks a bit odd and does not get sold by the shops. Their tagline reads ” because ugly vegetables also have feelings!”
There is also a woman selling her locally produced jam and her stand is a replica of a little cottage “støl” that was quite common in the Norwegian mountains. With a lot of very stereotypical Norwegian decor.
There is also a stand selling everything you need to brew your own beer. Craft beers and home brewing is very popular at the moment and here you can buy everything you need to brew your own beer and get good advice for how to do it.
There was a lot of other nice stands in there, but as it was a bit crowded I decided to come back in a few days to have a proper look around.
Hope the weekend is treating you all very good!
