Today is Nowruz, the Persian New Year. In the new market hall at Vågmästareplatsen Iranian shopkeepers had set up a Nowruz table. Among other things the table displays sprouting greens (symbol of nature’s reawakening), coloured eggs (symbols of fertility), apples (symbols of the world) and candles (symbols of fire).

Today is Shrove Tuesday – Fetisdag in Swedish. The traditional food for today is a semla, a Swedish Lenten bun with marzipan and cream. And what better way to celebrate than with a pot of coffee at a table in the atrium of the Antiques Market on Västra Hamngatan?

Serving coffee …

… or is it something else?
