Øramartn is the yearly summer market in Kyrksæterøra, normally held in the last weekend of July.
During the market period - about a week - the main street Øragata is closed for traffic and local and itinerant merchants set up shops and shacks.
For locals there is the meeting of friends, neigbours and an excuse to do something different, but for visiting tourists it seems like a tacky market and tepid beer in plastic cups.
Unique Suggestions: The thing to look for may probably be local snacks and BBQ food served in stalls, and the sellers of local woodcraft, knitwear and cured meats.
Another thing to look for is who is playing at this evening's outdoor concert - it happens sometimes that big names and good music crop up.
Fun Alternatives: Since many local people are drawn to the market days, you'll have the sea, the rivers, the mountains and the rest almost to yourself...

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If going into the back country hiking, camping, on a photo excursion, or fishing you will need rubber boots. Regular hiking shoes and even more sturdy hiking boots will get soggy, if not downright wet straight through. Experienced hikers, guests of mine have laughed at this, considering rubber boots a condensation trap and a primitive nuisance... They have all come to regret it once there.
If you do not have any rubber boots, good Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish designs are available. The light "seilerstovler" are no good, you need a pair with a sturdy outsole and proper heel. If you really insist on using leather, Lundhags and Alfa hunting boots are two brands high leather boots that will do the job - as well as do away with your wallet....
