At the start of each holiday season, Swedish Women’s Educational Association (SWEA) chapters across the United States (and beyond) put artisans, vendors and more on display for shoppers to browse and stock up on gifts, décor, books, textiles and all-holiday-things Swedish during a Jul Bazaar.

Jul, which translates to Christmas, and bazaars, which means market, typically serve fresh Scandi fair like meatballs and räksmörgås (open-faced shrimp or prawn sandwich) along with homemade glogg. Bakers’ treats fill the air with hints of cardamom, cinnamon and other baking spices, and some chapters even feature a St. Lucia procession.

Each SWEA chapter has its own, unique traditions, and dates for bazaars range from the weekend before Thanksgiving to early December. If you need to stock up on Dala horses and tomtes, simply want to kick off the holidays or immerse yourself in Swedish foods, crafts and culture, be sure to check out your local SWEA’s bazaar.

Here’s a roundup of some of SWEA Jul Bazaar’s happening across the United States.
