Flea markets are one of my favourites places to completely lose track of time. 🙂 I very much enjoy the versatility of things you can buy there, starting from antique furniture through no-use-at-all objects ending with some nice delicacies. You can just get everything you want, EVERYTHING!
It’s basically what you might expect at Reykjavik’s flea market, Kolaportið. It’s open on the weekends, mornings till 5 pm, but it’s better to go there quite early. It’s a nice attraction for travelers since you might get typical Icelandic woolen clothing like sweaters, hats, socks, well everything that keeps you warm during wintertime. 🙂
You can also try some Icelandic sweets, there’s quite a big range of typical products, also some herbal teas (I love them, really help me fall asleep when it’s still bright at midnight…). If you’re more into extreme adventures, you can buy there renowned, or rather notorious for its taste shark meat. There’s also an Asian shop with original products mostly from Thailand. I’ve recently bought awesome curry pastes there, recommend!
There are a lot of stalls with nice range of books, fiction and non-fiction. You can find there books about Icelandic history, arts, famous people, etc. Plus record stalls, great for music fans. And I think my favourite, postcard stall. ❤
A lot of things to explore, a lot of things to buy and a lot of things to enjoy. 🙂
