Saluhallen is the large covered fresh produce market, home to the Lisa Elmqvist and Gerda’s restaurants (see Restaurants). Inside you can buy anything from the richest chocolate cake to fish caught that morning. Ideally located in one of Östermalm’s most appealing market squares, Saluhallen is a foodie’s dream: you’ll take in your first breath of air and sigh contentedly as you enter.
rnThis is the haunt of Stockholm’s social elite, from the young hotshots who don’t have time to cook to the older wives who have pretended for years that Saluhallen’s exquisite ready-made meals are their own inventions. Well worth a visit just to soak up the atmosphere, smells and, inevitably, tastes.
