Food tours in Iceland?

Family wedding in Keflavik, and an excuse for my first visit to Iceland. Plenty to do on both family and tourism fronts, but I really would like to find a food tour there, presumably in Reykjavik. And are there any farmers' markets or street markets? I'll be there in late June. Thanks!

  1. We are headed there in late March, were you able to do any food touring?

      No food tours - did some research on my own, but was so short of time r/t family obligations that I was happy to get a couple of meals at a nice restaurant and a half-day to go exploring on my own. Interesting grocery store with a pink elephant emblem, and that was worthwhile. One specialty is caramelized rhubarb, which I found at a specialty store on the main drag in Reykjavik - some "gourmet foods" and chocolates and so on there. Very hospitable people, not just my new in-law's family, and did eat good home-food. Also whale at the wedding reception!

        Thanks for the reply, I will investigate the rhubarb.
