Passengers can buy produce and products directly from the local region when dozen producers from farms and businesses near the gateway sell apples, vinegar, jams, meat, honey and more.
Harvest Days takes place today and tomorrow in SkyCity, the business centre between Terminal 4 and Terminal 5 at Sweden’s main hub, and the aim is to offer more locally produced goods and products at the airport, both in stores and in restaurants.
The local farmers have access to an international marketplace that is visited by 65,000 travellers every day, plus the 17,500 employees at the airport.
Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda, explains: “By working with local farmers and business owners, we want to contribute to the sustainable development of the airport.
“We also want to highlight what is unique about the airport and the airport and the region work together.”
Stockholm Arlanda is planning to implement the produce days every year as a natural part of the airport and to aid the region's development, and has previously collaborated with local farmers who live and work nearby and Harvest Days are a natural continuation of the co-operation.
