Sample the best that Uppsala and Uppland has to offer by way of food and drink. Visit one of our annual food festivals or buy locally-grown specialities at our food markets.
Buy local produce at Uppsala’s food markets
Looking for freshly-harvested delicacies from the Uppland district? Every Friday in spring and autumn, Bondens Mat i Uppland hold their market in front of Uppsala travel centre. Here you will find artisan food producers from around the region and you can buy cheese, jams, vegetables and fresh meat – locally produced and good value for money.
If you miss Friday’s market by the travel centre, you can visit Fyristorg the following day. The stalls on the square are open all year round on ordinary Saturdays with sellers offering locally-grown food, berries, mushrooms and flowers.
In September, the annual harvest festival takes place in Wik. The autumn market is held in picturesque surroundings beside Lake Mälaren, with sales of local produce and handicrafts, along with entertainment for children and adults.
Uppsala Beer & Whisky Festival
Uppsala has a rich and vibrant pub and restaurant scene, in part thanks to our student ‘nations’. So it’s fitting that we can now boast our very own beer and whisky festival. Uppsala Beer & Whisky Festival was launched in 2015 and will be back again in early 2016.
Welcome to vegofest! April sees a full weekend devoted to the environment, health, animal rights and good food in Uppsala. Whether you are vegetarian, vegan or a confirmed meat-eater, you are welcome to share in talks, live music, workshops and vegetarian food.
Bondens egen Matfestival and Botans dag
On the last weekend in August every year the Botanical Garden is transformed into a food and garden festival with markets, displays and competitions. You can meet local producers from Uppland and buy everything from flowers and vegetables to organic meat, cheese, juice and jams.
