It's ok, bit like any British weekend outdoor market, loads of cheap tat. Food area was good, got to try some cake and biccies and bought some chocs and sweets. Really nothing special at all, but worth half hour of your time.

This is like every other flea market (garage sale). I couldn’t even find useless stocking stuffers for Christmas. Skip it.

Skip this flea market unless you're looking to purchase food items. Everything else is a waste of time. Very few items were authentic if that is important to you. We hoped to find some good Icelandic treasures but did not.

This is a true flea market so for that real experience this review is four blobs. The flea market is mid sized and offers a mix of used items as well some new ones. Not an upscale market by any means so don't expect it...More

This flea market is definitely a mixed bag...it gives you access to some great souvenir options at a much lower cost than in many of the standalone alone shops. However, in order to find those, you need to sort through stalls of used goods. You...More

On my second visit to Iceland, I decided to go to the Kolaportid Flea Market again, this time on Saturday before visiting the magnificent Whales of Iceland museum and am VERY glad I did😀. I don't understand why people don't appreciate this place. There are...More

Not sure about "sand". But there were several vendors selling jewelry made from naturally rounded basalt beach pebbles.

Quite a lot of vendors take card, and for those that do not, an ATM is provided next to the exit so cash is easily accessible.
