The Green Market was born in 2008 in our country as part of the dream and need of a people group. These people have different occupations. They were thinking about to create a place to interchange ideas, actions, products, and food. It was a meeting point among friends, local producers who were dedicated to the organic agriculture, and consumers. To sum up, they wanted to support a “Sustainable Life” Style in San José.
Nowadays, it is not only an Organic Market, but a meeting place that includes the community. Here, every kind of people can create connections and develop within a healthy and friendly environment, promoting the long-term health, the sustainability, and the care of our alimentary systems and Costa Rican communities.
Besides the products’ selling, a cultural schedule is offered, delivering live concerts, Yoga, workshops, lectures, discussion groups, and other artistic and cultural manifestations. You can visit it each Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Aranjuez Sports Center Park in San José. It is also in Ciudad Colón, every Tuesday, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at “Mercado Viejo” (Old Market). In both places, the visitors can enjoy delicious and healthy food. More information: https://www.facebook.com/FeriaVerde/
