How to Hygge

Published 10 July 2021
Win winter like the Danes do

Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is a Danish concept designed to help the Danes survive their long and dark winter months.

It's about creating feelings of tranquility, comfort and well-being and feeling snug in your indoor space.

This means putting on comfy clothes, ugg boots and curling up under a throw on the sofa with a good book, a candle flickering nearby and a new plant or some greenery to connect you with the outdoors.

At the Market, we have curated a list of our stalls that can help you create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere to while away the rest of winter.
