I also happened to be in Luleå when Sweden’s “largest” flea market/yard sale was going on – Arcus Fyndmarknad. Held twice a year in the massive Arcus indoor sports hall, the market draws thousands of sellers and buyers willing to weed through piles and piles of used items, vintage stuff, books, porcelain, and other household items up for sale.

Whenever I hit the center of town, I usually swing by Hötorget (Haymarket) to take in rows and rows of vividly colored fresh fruit and vegetables. And on days when I feel like breaking into my tiny savings account, I opt for 1-2 kilos of sweet bing cherries (bigarråer).
The guys are usually there everyday, except for Sundays when instead of fruit, you’ll find odd knick-knacks, vinyl records, worn out books, and other cheap antiques in their place at the makeshift flea market.
