Situated in front of Oslo Cathedral this traditional fruit, flower and vegetable market was a busy, very lively place when we visited it. There seemed to be a vast selection of greengrocery items available, and the flower stalls had good quality blooms.

A small number of booths, rather large ones, and with fairly long opening hours. Traditional veggies, flowers and seasonal offers are all there. Quite ok, ordinary and ok as such.

It is a spot where you can pick up some flowers under umbrellas. Everything looked nice and fresh and colorful.

Just in front of the Oslo Cathedral there is the flower market. Depending which season of the year are you here, there are different flowers. If you like flowers this is the right place for you.

Its is not that much to see here. They sell flowers here and there are a few shops around. The tramb and bus leaved from here, and also it is very near the Karl Johans Gate. Thats all. But if you want to see the Cathedral, its just across the street.

This small square is right in front of the main church in Oslo. It is just to the right of Karl Johan's gate. Most days it will have flower sellers there, but on the weekend it is really busy. Lots of stalls. When we went at Christmas there were also lots of stalls selling Xmas decorations as well as flowers.... More

Situated in front of the cathedral and also in front of the main department store, and just off the main pedestrian street Karl Johan's Gate, this little square with a flower market and an imposing statue makes for an interesting stop along one's walk thru downtown Oslo.

Most days you find a variety of flower merchants here in the middle of Oslo city center. Not very exciting, but nice.
