Kolaportið Flea Market


The Kolaportid flea market is located in the old harbor area, a few minutes from the city center. It is indoors and open every weekend.

Stalls sell vintage clothing, used books, dvds, knick knacks and antiques, as well as toys, woolen goods and more. Kolaportid is an ideal place to watch Icelanders in their natural habitat, and a great place to buy strange Icelandic delicasies such as dried fish and fermented shark, but alsot the freshest liqorice you have ever tasted and freshly baked „kleinur“. Most vendors only accept cash, there is an ATM located inside the market but the line can be quite long, so it is reccommended to get out cash in advance.
