When in Oslo, a few delis to visit:
At Majorstuen you should visit Fromagerie. A wide selection og cheese and trimmings.

A deli at Bygdøy allé, probably the best place in town for Norwegian cheese but also stocks a fine range of international varieties. They also do ready to eat take out meals and their apple cake is gorgeous. Next door is Fjeldberg, the best place for fresh fish and game.

Gutta på Haugen
Gutta på Haugen is an old fashioned shop for artisan food stuffs. At St. Hanshaugen. Also a branch at Mathallen and Via (right behind the National Museum).
And while you are there, Java, a must try coffee shop next door. One of Oslo’s oldest – and best.

Oslo’s food hall. Ideal for lunch and shopping all those goodies. Not so local though. Best place for French cheese is Galopin. For Norwegian and Dutch cheese try Ost & Sånt. Gutta has a bit of everything.
Juells 33 Kolonial
Somewhat similar to Gutta på Haugen, but more oriental. Fair selection of cheese but not extensive, more of the well knowns. Plus: a wide selection of artisan foods from “near and afar” including exotic.
