Our helpful cashier.

Recently, I discovered Oaxen Skafferi. Located on Södermalm at Mariatorget, the Skafferi (Swedish for pantry) is a butcher shop and specialty food store with a variety of aged, smoked and cured meats and sausages, mustards, oils, chutney, honey, butter and such Swedish favorites as gravad lax and pickled herring. We bought pepper sausages, a liver pate, pickled beets and cheese and thought everything was pretty good.

By the way, the pantry is owned by Oaxen Restaurant, voted one of the top 50 restaurants in the world. Oaxen closed its island location at the end of last year and will reopen in Stockholm on the island of Djurgarden in 2013. The Skafferi opened in December.

Eurotrip and Lou Lou, I thought that cider looked tasty too, but I have not tried it. Yet. This is a small store, but it has interesting stuff. Very New York City.
And Euro: The part of town where the store is located is cool too. Let me know if you want some Stockholm tips from a local point of view.

Looks like a fun place, but expensive…75k for a beer? That’s like $11.40 US

Hi Mary, the 75 SEK price tag actually belongs to the olive oil and the basalmic vinegar. The cider is 45. Still expensive, but not quite so bad!
