This Saturday I had the privilege of attending the Oslo Food Festival called MATSTREIF. My husband watched our son for the afternoon and I took off on my own to explore all that is food. I had to go through the market a couple of times before I was brave enough to shove my way through to snap some pictures. It was unbelievably crowded and I am a little shy. :) They had different programs running throughout the day which I am hoping to be able to take in next year, once I know Norwegian a little better. They also had tons of stuff for kids to do and take part in. It was a ton of fun and I am already excited for next year. Here are some pics from the day.
Karl Johans Gate where it was held. That is the palace of King Harald V at the end.
I never knew there were so many varieties
Lot’s of vegetables for sale
Lot’s of taste-testing too
Looks like these were selling well
Aren’t these preserves just breathtaking?
This jam was delicious. I tried the plum.
Making fish cakes
Grilled corn. Mmmm…
Flavoured Olive Oil and Jellies
Norwegian Pancakes. Very much like crepes just different. :)
It wouldn’t be fall without baskets of apples
Orange Salad Dressing
Hamburgers for the masses
This is where all the events were held
They also had a petting zoo for the kidlets
I’m pretty sure these horses were stuffed by the end of the day
And, that it! Till next year. :)
