Shopping in Varberg
Enjoy the shopping in Varberg. Here you can find small unique boutiques as well as H&M.
It is frequently remarked that Varberg’s market square is the best in the West of Sweden. The market traders set out their wares every Wednesday and Saturday. Come along and experience the trade or just enjoy everything that there is to see.
After walking round the square you can have a coffee and perhaps treat yourself to a cake. There are lots of cafés to choose from in the town centre. Find one that you like and allow it to reinvigorate you to continue your shopping trip.
The large chain stores are to be found in the town centre, but above all there are small local shops with their own range and profile. This is where you’ll find what nobody else has.
The local bakeries, food shops and delicatessens offer personal service and create a delightful atmosphere. The food, bread and chocolate taste so much more delicious.
Every Wednesday and Saturday, all year round, the square in Varberg blossoms with a brilliantly coloured selection of goods. There is also a lively café tradition here and there are 10 or so cafés to choose from around the square.
If you’ve planned a day at the beach, you’ve got time for a visit to the market before it gets too hot.
