Over the last two years, Nobelberget Marknad has been one of Stockholm’s most popular open-air day markets, with its mix of live music, food trucks and, obviously, stalls selling clothes, food and everything else drawing people from all over the city to Sickla on Sundays. But now it’s all coming to an end. Nobelberget is set to be demolished in January, and this is the last market of the summer, that means its also the last ever (at least in its current format). So they’re planning to sign off with a bang. They’ve booked in four live bands, indie icon Jonathan Johansson, Grammis-nominated Loney Dear, the dark pop of The Hanged Man and children’s artist Jojje Wadenius. As well as that, there’s all the market’s usuals, with over 50 exhibitors bringing everything from kombucha workshops to a bike market.
Nobelberget Marknad’s Thea Mårdbrant says: “Because this is the last ever time we’ll have the market in this format, where you can stroll around in the sun with an gin and tonic in hand, we want to make this a big one. We’ve been a blessed group to be able to run this market, and the result is that it’s a good mix of things we ourselves think are fun. I think we’re going to miss the wonderful, wild arena that our market has been. The market this Sunday will be a little bit of a demolition party”.
Martin Lagerberg, another of the market’s organisers, says: “With Nobelberget Marknad, we’ve been able to change what people expect of a market, expand the concept […] We wanted to give culture a firm place at the market, and not let just buying and selling be the main focus”.
The market opens from 11:00 on Sunday.
