Harvest time in autumn
During the late summer and autumn, you are welcome to come to Halmstad to enjoy taste sensations that will remain long in memory. Meet farmers, food creators and food lovers who are passionate about growing, picking, preparing and serving you nature’s treasures from Halland’s soil.
Around this time we come together at autumn markets and harvest festivals, we harvest cabbage and beets, and we pickle vegetables. And we invite you to join our community to enjoy Halland’s flavours and experience the love of food made from local produce.
Farm shops, local flavours and top quality raw ingredients
Embark on a culinary journey through the landscape and sample the flavours of Halland from the soil, the forest and the fields. It’s worth a day trip or two to one of our well-stocked farm shops! We have put together a list of our local farm shops and are sure that this will give rise to a loving conversation about the love of food, the raw ingredients and the products.
At harvest time, a visit to Halmstad is a dream come true for food lovers. Here you will find the pride of Halland – kale and salmon (Lynga Lax (Swe)). But not only that! Visiting a local food producer will give your taste buds a proper workout. Cheese from Kvibille (Swe), jam and juice from Hafi (Swe), kale crispbread from Börjes (Swe), home-grown vegetables at Kaggagård (Swe) and Dränggård farm shops, pickled kimchi from Paulssons Paleo, and much more besides.
And as if that weren’t enough, you can find local dairy products at Wapnö (Swe), as well as game, beef, and lamb at several livestock producers such as Gudagottt (Swe) and Ulvereds. Don’t be fooled – what you see is what you get. High quality, locally grown, picked and prepared with love!
The taste of the wilderness
Head out into the wilderness and find your own favourite flavours. We have put together tips about berries and mushroom picking, invigorating hiking trails, amazing nature reserves and much more besides. Which spot will be your favourite?
