The Scandinavian Christmas Markets in London is an opportunity to secure essential delicatessen and decoration for the holidays. There are three wonderful Scandinavian Christmas markets this November; the Norwegian and the Danish ‘Julebasar’ and the Swedish ‘Julmarknad’. And here are the dates, for your diary.
On offer is Scandinavian christmas foods and cookies. You can purchase Christmas decorations as well as beautiful Christmas gifts from various Scandinavian designers. There’s also hand made knitwear and beautiful textiles and of course proper candles in top quality. Food and drinks are available to purchase throughout, there’s music and activities for the children.

Now, I’ll leave it to you to decide which of the Scandinavian Christmas Fair you prefer (if you just not happen to love Scandinavian Christmas and are planning on attending all three events!) which has the best atmosphere and last but not east, serves the best Scandinavian mulled wine, gløgg.
We will be attending all three – hope to see you there!
