Puriscal Farmers Market

Every Saturday morning there is a local farmers market in the town of Puriscal, a short drive or bus ride from Finca Las Alturas. Like similar markets around the world, farmers bring their produce into town and sell direct to consumers in a wonderful, colourful and delicious highlight to the week (I’m especially partial to fresh, locally grown produce).

Puriscal Farmers Market, Costa Rica

The farmers market used to be out on a street that was closed off to traffic, but as of two weeks ago it moved to a new facility with cover to protect from sun and rain. It’s wonderful! Each of the vendors wears a green shirt to identify them and there is lots of room for expansion.Puriscal Farmers Market
