You can shop in picturesque turn-of-the-century settings in the town centre.
Kungsbacka has been synonymous with trade and markets ever since the 14th century, when sword swallowers and tightrope walkers would jostle with livestock sellers and milliners. Today, Kungsbacka is one of western Sweden’s largest trade centres. Genuinity and tradition still live on here alongside new trends and modern shopping malls.
On the first Thursday of every month (except bank holidays), all year round, vendors and market-goers flock to Kungsbacka Market. It’s been this way for over 600 years. Market music is performed in the church and cafés, and restaurants keep longer hours.
