"Martnan" - the market, is going on in Trondheim for three days. Martnan is an annual event with roots back to medieval times. There are hundreds of stalls, most of then totally without any interest, but this the Martnan is an event we have to visit.
An in between the cheap stalls you find treasures. Especially the food stalls where you can buy traditional food. Dried sausages and a very special honey cake have been favoriets since my childhood. And also a special cookie called "rømmebrød". I bought a box, and we had some for supper tonight, with brown goat cheese.
The quilt in the background, a crazy star, was handpieced and handquilted by me some years ago.

I've never heard of those cookies but they look delicious!

They are from a special area in Norway, Gudbrandsdalen.

see you there! said...

Now wouldn't I like to try that? The food stalls are the first place I head at open markets.

I have looked in various cheese shops here for some brown cheese from Norway. Maybe we don't import it. Now that I see the package it come in I'll keep looking.

I'm drawn to the cheese too. In fact, i'm practically drooling : ) Seriously, whenever you show cheeses from your country they look soooooo good. Like Darla, I'll be looking to see if anyone imports are sent to my neck of the woods (oregon).

Blessed Weekend : ) Wendy
