Now when I was planning on coming to Norway, I thought that I was basically saying goodbye to most ethnic food (I was willing to make notable exceptions for Chinese takeout and sushi), but I was pleasantly surprised when I was told secondhand that Norway has a number of “asian” or ethnic markets. Once I arrived, it quickly became apparent that this was true. I’ve even seem them up in Tromsø!
When it comes to Trondheim, the city has a number of “asian” markets (I’ve put asian in quotes since not all of them are asian), and after much wandering and exploring I’ve managed to find a number of them around town. There are two main benefits to shopping at these markets in Norway. The first is that you are often able to buy some foods that might be out of the ordinary, and the second is that most of the products are cheaper than what you can find at your normal grocery store, particularly when it comes to produce (the freshness of the produce does tend to be a bit hit or miss). I’ve included the markets that I’ve managed to find in the map below, and I’ve also included my own notes on the map (to see them simple click on the pin and the notes should pop up).
