a little bit of norway in iowa



Vær Så God is a Norwegian specialty shop offering Norwegian food, gifts, products and clothing, including online sales and local catering. We're in Forest City, Iowa, which is home to the highest percentage of people claiming Norwegian ancestry in the state. We hope to keep the Norwegian traditions of lefse, rosemaling and many others alive while introducing new and exciting products and food from Norway and the rest of Scandinavia.

Make yourself at home here. If you have any questions or comments, please send us an email. We’re happy to add another Norwegian food or fashion to our product line, if you can’t find what you’re looking for on our site. Just let us know, and we’ll try to get it for you. 

Vær så god!
