I love Christmas markets, especially Scandinavian ones. There’s something especially Christmassy about tucking into hearty stews and sipping on a warming mug of Nordic glögg. Not to mention, all the Moomin memorabilia, Finnish beer and cinnamon buns to be had (as well as rye breads, gravadlax, Fazer chocolates and cloudberry jam).
The Scandinavian Christmas Market (Norwegian Christmas Fair and Finnish Christmas Fair), located on Albion Street outside the Finnish and Norwegian Churches in Rotherhithe, was on at the weekend from 21-23 November 2014. G was kind to send some lovely photos so I didn’t feel left out.
Despite the dreary weather, there were a few hundred visitors. But according to the G, the market was just ‘okay’ and nothing to write home about. That said, I’d still like to check it out next time or even better, spend Christmas in Finland!
