On top of browsing through the stalls, visitors can enjoy live music and indulge in traditional Swedish open sandwiches, pastries and cookies, as well as hot dogs and glögg (mulled wine) being served at The Swedish Café.

While parents shop for gifts, children can get into the festive spirit at Christmas craft making stations.

There's something for the whole family to enjoy.
