The Raseborg region offers wonderful delicacies, where locally produced goods and organic treats are a way of life. Take the tasty tour in one day by car, or bicycle your way through in a couple of days. A long weekend tasting delights is never a bad idea either.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays local fishermen sell herring, perch, pike-perch and whitefish freshly caught nearby. Don’t forget the herring rolls, pickled herring and fish burgers that have been locally prepared. On other tables are locally grown tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce, root vegetables, onions, potatoes and carrots. In late summer the region’s juicy apples ripen and berries and mushrooms are delicacies from the nearby forests.
Ekenäs Old Town
We can explore the garden cafés in Ekenäs that bake their own pastries. Café Gamla Stan is a red cottage and a picturesque garden with apple trees offers chocolate, strawberry and lemon cakes as well as savoury pies. Troubadours perform in the garden every Tuesday in the summer. The café is open daily in the summer and before Christmas. On the market square is Café Carl de Mumma, open early, where you can buy fresh bread, sandwiches, rolls and pastries. Just off the pedestrian street is café Wi-Box, selling delicious muffins, tarts and other sweet and savoury delicacies.
Frimans supermarket has a wellstocked cheese counter, including local cheese produced in nearby arms. Café Villa Skarp on the store’s second floor serves their own sandwiches and rolls. It also sells ice cream
from the local Herrgårds ice cream company. If you’re hungry you should visit Restaurant Bakfickan and have a really nice lunch or dinner.
Mörby gård Farm Shop is located halfway between Tenala and Fiskars. The organic farm’s versatile meat range is something completely different than what you find in supermarket refrigerators. Try the organic
flour, whose coarse richness gives bread an extra good taste. Vegetables are also for sale. Adjacent to the store cows moo and the farm cat slips around corners. A country Christmas market is held every year on the farm.
Pojo and Fiskars Village
On the way to Fiskars is the organic bakery and café Backers Baker. The bakery produces its own grain on an organic farm in Snappertuna and bakes the most wonderful breads and pastries according to Finnish tradition.
Gourmet lovers have many good reasons to come to Fiskars – in all seasons. Fiskars Village’s strong culinary tradition continues to this day with a varied local and organic cuisine.
In Fiskars Village there are high quality and atmospheric restaurants and cafés that operate year-round which welcome visitors who wish to satisfy their taste buds.
During the past years Fiskars has also attracted different kinds of small producers such as Fiskars Brewery and Ägräs Destillery. The Ägras gin with a taste of juniper berry with highlight notes of coriander seeds, citrus and angelica, won both silver and gold medal in international competitions.
Popular food events like Slow Food-festival, Maan Maut and the Spring market enhances the Village’s food offering. More about what Fiskars has to offer on their website.
