Colors, freshness and quality, all of this is in abundance at the various farmers’ fairs in Costa Rica.
Despite the global health crisis due to the Coronavirus, people can continue to have a variety of fresh products from Costa Rican farmers.
Those who visit the fairs will have that touch of Pura Vida, and wanting to come again
Beyond the Costa Rican beaches and the authentic greenery, there are other reasons why people decide visiting the Central American country, like feeling, appreciating and enjoying everything healthy, as for example, the food that is inside the farmer’s fairs or markets.
The local farmers markets are an example of pure life itself, of our perseverance and culture.
If you plan to visit Costa Rica or if you are a local, but you have not attended any farmers markets, then you should not miss out visiting them, let’s say it is a great first step to adapt to the Costa Rican society.
At them you can practice your Spanish, meet new people, buy fresh vegetables and 100% organic products, inexpensive by the way.
Each locality has its own market. Farmers generally meet in the central area of town, or at the bus station and for about 5 hours sell what they have just harvested.
What colors, what freshness, that aroma of flowers, what wonderful people, so warm, surely those will be your expressions when you visit these fairs.
You will taste fruits that your eyes have never seen and also typical Costa Rican elaborated dishes, so I insist, take some time, and visit the fairs, your body will thank you later.
