The Winter Market in Åsele in southern Lapland used to support the "Sörkörare" - "south drivers" of the Nolaskogs area at the Baltic coast with merchandise from Lapland to be resold in Stockholm and Uppsala further south.

This is no longer the purpose of the market; it is rather a time for several local activities like fishing competitions. But still you can buy local products like cheese, berries, smoked meat of reindeer, et cetera.

There is also a Summer Market, in 2005 at July 15 - 18, which is a larger event.

[Svenska] Åsele Vintermarknad
Åsele Vintermarknad försåg Sörkörarna från Nolaskogs - Örnsköldsviksområdet - med handelsvaror från lappland, t.ex. skinn och renkött. Sörkörarna sålde sedan varorna vidare i Uppsala- och Stockholmsområdet.

Numera har marknaden andra aktiviteter, som t.ex. pimpeltävlingar (Åselenappet), men det finns många lokalt producerade varor att köpa.

Den stora Åsele Marknad hålls på sommaren, närmast 15-18 juli 2005.
Behind the scene
Friday March 18 was a sunny but cold day (-10 centigrade) and the wind added extra chilling, so my fingers quickly got very frozen. My two daugheters (3 and 5 years) had followed me for the trip to Åsele, which is located two hours drive from my home town Örnsköldsvik and they kept screaming for candies all the time.

The chill and the screaming made it impossible for me to stay for more than an hour. I did not have time to take all the panoramas I had been looking forward to for making a virtual tour of the market. But maybe next year...
