Hornstull’s Marknad is an outdoor street market situated in the western part of the Stockholm borough Södermalm. In favorable weather conditions the market stretches along the water in Hornstull. In case of rain the market will move up under the bridge (Liljeholmsbron) which connects Södermalm to some of the southern suburbs. Expect to find a variety of vintage, second-hand, food, art and everything else that comes with a proper street market.
The Sunday market has, in a short period of time, become one of Stockholm’s favorite Sunday activities; a natural spot to meet up with your friends, grab some food and coffee, browse the market and enjoy a day out and a day off.
Open 11-17 every Sunday May-Sep, except midsummer (June 23)
