Dreams of modernity – the rise of the market hall

Abstract [en]

This article deals with the attempt to create a full-scale market hall system in Stockholm 1865–1929. The initial ambition was to instill the much-admired international models, but the Swedish development followed its own path. The main problem for the municipal authorities was to secure a safe and sufficient food supply for the inhabitants of the rapidly growing city. A modern, rational food supply was seen as emblematic of a modern, rational city – which was something the provincial yet ambitious capital aspired to be. However, the ways to achieve a rational food trade worthy of a modern city were reinterpreted and reevaluated over the sixty-year period examined.
