A taste of Kristinehamn

"Smaka på Kristinehamn" is a network of producers, farm shops, and restaurants who want to raise awareness of the importance of locally produced food and drink. Many of the products can also be found in the local grocery stores and restaurants are asked to state when local produce is included.

I buy locally produced food and drink because I care about my health and body, my neighborhood and the environment. It's a win-win for everyone!

Christina Skan

It's easy to buy and eat locally produced food and drink!

Many producers sell their products in the local grocery stores, look out for "local symbols". Almost all local producers are represented in the farm shops; Retrovågen (town center), The farm shop at Karaby gård (just outside town) Hygns Vilt farm shop (approx. 35 km south of Kristinehamn). The restaurants can be found both in town and in the countryside.
