In the beginning of October Mathallen – Oslo's new food market - opened in a beautiful restored factory building located on the riverside of Akerselva in east Oslo.
33 gourmet stores, bars and restaurants offer food from Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Asia - but the main focus is on a variety of high quality Norwegian produce. "We want Mathallen to be a place for everyone. From amateur cooks and people who happens to love eating and drinking - to professional chefs and restauranteurs. Mathallen is going to be a source of the best Norwegian and international delicacies", says Frode Rønne Malmo, marketing director at Mathallen.
In Mathallen you can find what's been described as 'the best scallops in Norway', as well as delicious, locally made cheese, hams, sausages, cider and beer. According to Rønne Malmo the ambition is to become a centre for Norwegian food culture – where you will be met with, and can share, culinary knowledge and understanding. A place to explore, to ask questions and to discover new flavours. "We want Mathallen to be a place - an attraction - where you can come and spend a day off with family and friends. Here you will be able to experience food closely - see, listen, taste and enjoy", says Rønne Malmo.
Aspelin Ramm, the company behind Mathallen, have looked to other successful food markets in capital cities such as Torvhallerne in Copenhagen and Borough Market in London for inspiration. "We have seen what a huge success Borough Market and Torvhallerne have become, and we think it is just about time that Oslo also get its own food market. During the last couple of years we have seen that the fishmongers, butchers and other specialist food shops in the centre of Oslo have closed down because of the strong competition from the big supermarket chains. We want to bring the good food experiences and knowledge back", says Rønne Malmo.
