Stortorvet is located in front of Oslo Cathedral. In summer there is a market with flowers, fruit, and vegetables. In the middle of the square, is a statue of King Christian IV. The department store GlasMagasinet, opened in 1899, is also located here.

If you need quality flowers or plants then you can't beat this place. There's not much here. Sometimes the street food trucks are placed there. Quality food on the go.

Situated in front of Oslo Cathedral this traditional fruit, flower and vegetable market was a busy, very lively place when we visited it. There seemed to be a vast selection of greengrocery items available, and the flower stalls had good quality blooms.

A small number of booths, rather large ones, and with fairly long opening hours. Traditional veggies, flowers and seasonal offers are all there. Quite ok, ordinary and ok as such.

It is a spot where you can pick up some flowers under umbrellas. Everything looked nice and fresh and colorful.
