Kolaportið - Shopping in Reykjavik - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

It's cheap and chaotic. It's the best place to find second hand clothes, DVDs, CDs, books and various souvenirs. The best thing about it though is the food section.

Why you should visit it

If not for buying second hand stuff for affordable price, then go there to buy from the food section. Show up early though, as early birds catch the worm. The good things go out quickly. Bring cash!

Special tip

In the food section, try out the purified shark. If you ask nicely, the seller might even give you a taste.

The only market in the city where you can find local crafting, books and other things. It is situated in a building, so the weather is of no concern. You can buy food there as well if you get hungry. The cafeteria is usually full of locals, for example the elderly are really fond of this place.
