We arrived in Reykjavik early on Sunday. Grabbed a hotdog with the works at Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur and headed over to the Flea Market. Like every other flea market anywhere else in the world, don't expect to find an abundance of quality merchandise - but do have a great time sampling items from the food vendors (just keep an eye...

This is an interesting place to see local goods on the weekend in Reykjavik. Not a place that I spent a lot of time, but there is a food market in the back where you can sample various local breads and dried fish.

The market only opens on the weekend, so we only had about 10 minutes to wander round before we had to leave for our flight. The people seemed very friendly and were not pushy. There were a few jewellery stalls, and I managed to get some authentic lava beads so that I could make my own earrings at home. Nothing... More

The flea market is half food, then split between cheap consumer goods and collectibles. As a new nation, Iceland has to import most antique furniture, but I found some nice local airline and aviation collectibles but certainly nothing from WWII occupation periods. Lots of coins and stamps here. You can do this quickly. Some of the vendors didn't seem to... More

A pity that it only opens on weekends but there are all sorts of interesting stuff here. Jewellery, clothes, hats, books, furs, oriental house decorations (we bought some exquisite pieces). There is also a food section where you can taste a number of local delicacies and cakes. Even the traditional Greenland basking shark which you have to develop a taste... More

We caught this indoor 'flea market' for about an hour, approaching closing time, so we didn't get to take quite as much time as we would have liked. As with flea markets in the USA, many of the stalls were commercial vendors of the usual fare (t-shirts, cheesy non-locally-produced products, etc), but there were also quite a few of the... More

Came upon this market, whilst walking around Reykjavik. Nothing overly special, pretty much like our covered markets back home. Sell lots of local woollen goods as well as the usual mobile phone accessories etc, all still quite expensive even though it's a market. There was a refrigeratored fish stall area, where the stall holder let us try the fermented shark.... More

This has changed in recent years (I've been there five times since 2004) with more re-sellers with Chinese junk. Still, there are some worthwhile features, the food section is good: lots of dried fish and other otherwise unobtainable goodies, a good stamp/ephemera seller, Icelandic books. The overall atmosphere is worth a visit, a chance to mingle with the locals. Like... More
