Some of the world’s best chefs come from Skåne, and it’s probably because they’re used to working with the best ingredients. Locally cultivated, super-organic specialties such as cheese, fish, vegetables, fruit jams and juices are all being sold in farm shops and food stores all across the region. So next time you see a sign saying "Farm Shop", "Freshly caught herring" or "New potatoes”, turn off the road and turn on to some great locally grown delicacies. Here’s a specially selected list of farm shops and markets where you shop meat, eggs, musts, fish, mustard, apples, raspberries, cheese and other locally grown goodies.
