El Mercado Verde
El Mercado Verde is a weekly farmers market hosted by local producers who are showcasing their many wonderful products that are made with love.
The market takes place every Saturday from 11am – 3pm at Los Higuerones’ space in Puerto Jimenez. It is an opportunity to purchase fresh produce and artisan products, thereby directly supporting the local community here on the Osa Peninsula.
The weekly market also offers delicious Costa Rican food prepared on the fugón (wood fired stove) and in other traditional ways.
The space serves multiple purposes, allowing producers to sell their products at a fair price to consumers or trade with one another. It also provides an opportunity for community members to offer live music, workshops and events. By bringing together local community members alongside visitors to the Osa, the market offers a valuable opportunity for cross-cultural connection through food, music and conversation.
If you are interested in selling products or running an event during Mercado Verde or would like to find out about renting our space on other days for hosting events and meetings, please get in touch.
