Located on Skostredet 16, Robotbutikken, is a shop that offers books and music albums created by national and international artists. Although small, this boutique is well-stocked and thrives to offer the city with something unique. From the time this store opened in 2006, it has been hosting live concerts, literary readings and lectures in its vicinity and attracted a lot of attention.
Fisketorget, which means fish market, is a large market that primarily sells fish. Although it does also sell other produce like fruits and vegetables, arts and crafts, the market has become a huge tourist spot for being a fish market, probably the most visited in the city. Each day, trawlers unload tonnes of the freshest catch from the ocean. From lobsters to tunas, to even prawns and mackerels and shrimps, the vendors sell them all. Locals arrive at the market quite early to get their hands on the best deals. For more information, call ahead.
