The annual Apple Market takes place on 24-25 September in Kivik’s harbour. The popular harvest festival in southern Sweden has apples at its heart, as arranged by non-profit organisation Äppelmarknaden i Kivik together with local farmers and companies involved in the fruit industry, such as Äppelriket and Kiviks Musteri. “We want to showcase the uniqueness of Swedish fruit and increase the knowledge of fruit growing,” explains festival chairman Lars-Olof Börjesson. The event attracts around 20,000 visitors every year during the weekend and an additional 30,000 in the following two weeks, when part of the exhibition is still on display in the harbour.
