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.
