Right after a couple of Days at Stockholm furniture and light fair I headed back to the North again, It was time for Jokkmokks market. This year they are celebrating 410 years. The temperature was only -15 C when I arrived and I was enjoying being back again, breathing fresh clean air. Focus this year for the market was diversity.

I had a refreshing cup of homemade Tea at Viddernas Café made from local herbs, this one with roseroot. Viddernas hus. For Lunch I stopped by Samernas restaurang where Greta Huuva was cooking renköttsoppa med blodpalt and renskav med mos, I ordered renköttsoppan med blodpalt which was great (reindeer meat soup with reindeer blood palt).
