There is a lot of people who enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and that is one of the main reasons they’ve decided to relocate in Costa Rica.
Fortunately there is a lot of farming here in Costa Rica, so most towns hold a farmer markets on Saturdays near the central park of the county. Depending on the location the day might vary through the week.
I had friends who consulted me about the amount of pesticides that are use in Costa Rica, living in an area where a big percentage of the economy moves around fruits and vegetables I had to agree with this.
Good news is that there are ticos who prefer organic fruits and vegetables and there is markets that supply this demand.
So, where to find them?
