In the past the variety of food products in Iceland was severely limited; as late as the 1960s apples and oranges were luxuries served only at Christmas. Times have changed of course and today's means of transportation ensure that anything from the freshest fruits and vegetables to various delicacies from foreign shores are all readily available in Iceland.
The country's largest supermarket is located in the Kringlan mall. Whether you are looking for just the basics, or something more specialised such as organic or natural foods, Icelandic specialities, fresh fish or domestic and imported cheeses, this is the place most likely to have it.
Other supermarkets and grocers throughout the country are also well-stocked with all of the above; especially in the capital area where opening hours are highly convenient. Two of the largest supermarket chains, Hagkaup and Nóatún, stay open as late as 9 pm, the 10-11 shops stay open until 11 pm and the same goes for the chain of shops known as 11-11.
