On a recent visit to Sweden, the fall season was in full swing, and what a remarkable time of year to visit this beautiful country. Visit the town of Kivik in southern Sweden in late September to experience this free annual festival. The area around Kivik has long been an important supplier of Sweden’s fruit, so in 1988, the town of Kivik held the first annual Kivik Apple Market festival in late September, the end of the Swedish harvesting season.
The eye-catcher at the Apple Market in Kivik must be the “apple art”: pieces of art that look like paintings, but are actually pieced together by tons and tons of colorful apples, like a mosaic! The paintings made of apples look beautiful, but weigh up to 4 tons.
