The Höganäs Saluhall - Art Galleries, Deli, and Buffet

I hitched a ride with a friendly and generous English couple who had come to Sweden by ferry with their car. Only a 15 or 20 minute drive from Mölle, Höganäs is a prominent ceramics center in Sweden, as well an industrial town. The Saluhall is a former kiln building that has been converted to ceramics, design and food shopping as well as a restaurant. The large cylindrical kilns are now showrooms for ceramics and interior design products. The buffet lunch included two main dishes, soup and bread and several fresh salads. I have my friends to thank for my visit to Höganäs since my bus would have bypassed this fascinating site.

The top floor gives access to the kiln roofs, which are both attractive and utilitarian

I was traveling light. These images were taken with a small Samsung point-and-shoot camera or a smartphone!

Thank you!
