Mathallen is modeled on European food markets and offers a wide variety of delis, cafés, and eateries. Most of the produce on offer is rather unique or locally sourced, be it meat, fish, veggies, baked goods, or coffee.
Mathallen claims to be a place for everyone, from sous chefs to regular joes—a center for Norwegian food culture and food enjoyment. If nothing else, you can always try the Smalahove (sheep’s head).
Located between fashionble area St. Hanshaugen and über trendy Grünerløkka, this is a good area to explore anyway, so why not stop for a bite to eat at Mathallen?

Overlooking the Aker River, the impressive market hall Mathallen Oslo is both a scenic lunch spot and a source of edible souvenirs. Try Anni’s Pølsemakeri for sausages and cured meats and Bondens Butikk Vulkan for organic fruit and vegetables. Nordic cheeses are on display at Den Blinde Ku (The Blind Cow).
