Lilla Torget (the Little Square) is an old market square dating from the middle of the 19th Century where wood furniture and other goods were sold. Known colloquially as Trätorget (Wood Market), Lilla Torget is located southwest of the harbor canal where many buyers arrived in their small boats. Along with the restaurants and shops that line the square, there is also a statue of Johan Alströmer (1685-1761), the man who introduced the potato to Sweden in 1724. These days, the square functions as a bus stop and is only a short walk from the city center.
