Succulent Cherries At Hötorget

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.
