Just gone noon last Saturday I met up with my friend by the harbour. We got on a ferry across the water and stepped onto the docks by Lindholmen Pier. I must say it was literally years since I went on the ferry across the canal. And realising that, I almost felt ashamed. How come I don't explore my own city more? I feel like I do, but then - thinking about it, I absolutely don't. Stepping off that boat was a great reminder to myself, that I need to do more new things in Gothenburg, more often.
Lindholmen Street Food Market
So, anyway! Across the water, on Hisingen Island, amongst flashy office buildings - you'll still find some old buildings that have been around since the good ol' days, when the area was used as a massive boatyard. One of those old buildings has been turned into a hipster indoors street food market, and it's all kinds of amazing!
When you step into the market you need to buy "food cards", for 60 SEK each. One card will give you one half portion inside any of the food trucks. And one half portion is just that, half a portion, meaning you'll need around two to feel almost satisfied. Because, you can't get too full, can you? - they have dessert trucks too.
The market has both some set food stands, and some new ones every week, the girl at the entrance told us. Meaning, you can visit many times without it feeling repetitive. They're open every Saturday from 12-17 until sometime in June. So, needless to say - I'll definitely stop by again. Soon!
Among other yummy things, we ate tacos - that were amazing. And Belgian waffles, that got devoured faster than I could take a photo...
The stairs that take you up to the second floor will find you to more seats, and most importantly - art from local artists
Oh, hi - that's me. And no, I'm not ill - the photo was over exposed beyond saving. But hey - mostly, I'm just pale from winter. Let's be honest...
How to get there
Get down to Stenpiren (Stone Pier). You can get there by tram or bus, then get on a 285 ferry across the water to Lindholmspiren (Lindholmen Pier). They go every half an hour and you use the same ticket as you would going on any bus or tram in the city. When you get off the ferry, just follow the crowd. Because, yes, there will be a crowd streaming towards the markets.
