Hot dog was 400 ISK on June 17, 2017; lamb soup 950; coffee 350. It's filled with "regular stalls" where you can find almost anything but no real "super deals." Mainly tourists shopping.

I stopped here out of curiosity after reading other reviews on this site. I was disappointed. Most of the items were over-priced. I did not see anything that was a "bargain", which is what I would expect to find in a flea market. Plus, some...More

This is a pretty neat place to stop in. The sweaters that are all over Iceland are much cheaper here, although you have to pay cash. There's also lots of local food.

Big flea market selling all the usual old left over stuff from books, clothes, the odd antique to music, foods, and piles of stuff in search of hidden treasure. Cash only here.

First things first, it opens on Saturdays only. We went there after visiting Harpa (nearby) and it appears like most other flea markets elsewhere. Old books, toys, food (another section) and anything else all under one roof. The fermented shark wasn't as horrible for a...More

I can't say I was blown away by the place, but it was cool enough to stop in and check out. There was a little grocery section that was cool, but it was mostly just like any other flea market. I left empty-handed, but didn't...More

This place is really a flea market. At least the front portion of it is. It is only open on Saturdays, and they really do sell used and second hand items. There was a really cool vintage postcard and stamps stall if you are into...More

Kolaportid is only open on satuırdays and sundays and locals open their stalls to sell books, vinyls, comics, t-shirts and DVD's. However for a second hand market I find the prices quite high. The small food market is more entertaining and you can buy some...More

If you miss it, it's certainly not the end of the world. However, it's a nice place to get a better feel of local foods and customs. Many stalls sell random junk that clearly came out of a Chinese factory and nobody would need, but...More

Cash is King and one can get the best bargain when paying with cash.However one can also pay with a card in the food hall and on the stalls which stock new items.
What is the average cost of a woolen sweater at the flea market? Is there any good "garage sale" finds?

Hi antigravity28, I just came back from Reykjavik three days ago and yes you can find "garage sale" sweaters for reasonable prices, but many are classics, some with blemishes of some sort or another. I bought a new one for... More
