Next weekend, the largest Icelandic food market will be held at Harpa. It’s hosted by Búrið, “The Icelandic Pantry,” a small cheese shop down by the harbour.
It started off as a small event 5 years ago and has evolved into a fabulous festival of food which is now held three times a year. It’s the only event of its kind in Iceland.
Over 45 farmers, fishermen, and specialist producers will come together under one roof, bringing with them an incredible array of fresh local produce. You will find an eclectic mix of traditional foods steeped in Icelandic history, alongside innovative and inspired new delectable products that cannot be found anywhere else.
You will also have the rare opportunity to speak directly to these pioneering food heroes who are leading resurgence in fantastic, creative and well made local foods, and you get to taste it!
I wrote about my experience when it was held in February, and what I bought. Needless to say, I highly recommend checking this great event out!
Admission is only 1000 ISK per person. Free for children under 16 yrs.
