HOT DOGS AND A BARGAIN
This is not exactly an article about a specific place to eat.. And it definitely is not an article about haute cuisine. The opening hours are funny and it keeps moving around and the help keeps changing. It's not a place its an event.

The only good reason to write about it is that its a lot of fun, it's where you can rub elbows with the natives, make a good deal on a used krumkake iron and enjoy a hot dog, Norwegian style. This is an article about Norwegian flea-markets
.
The Norwegian flea-market season is twice a year, now and in the spring. They are arranged by parents or a church congregation in order to raise money for a worthy cause- new instruments for the band or a roof for the church. The only way to find out about them is to look in the local paper in the ad section under Loppemarkets.

Once finding where there being held there's the challenge of getting there. Its a great way to get to know the local transportation system. Warning- its also a great way to get lost. So take along a map, get directions before going and wear good walking shoes. And what would I recommend? Well of course try a hot dog, and a definite must are the waffles. The heart shaped waffles. They'll go right to your heart
