We have an amazing community of farmers, artisans, bakers, chefs and many more producers who have wonderful products made with love, cultivated in sync with the ecosystems, locally, without the addition of any chemicals.
With the influx of big super market chains and their "not so clean" supply chains, the market in OSA has been flooded with cheap products that are imported from within and outside the country.
Here at Los Higuerones Cooperativo, working with the community, we established a space to host a market every Saturday from 11 AM to 4 PM. This space enables the wonderful producers of OSA to showcase their products made with love and care for the community both resident and visiting Puerto Jimenez.
The market also showcases local chefs who create traditional and delicious Costa Rican food on the fugon (wood fired stove).
The space serves multiple purposes, first, it allows the producers a space to sell their products at a fair price. It creates a collective environment where inter trade can happen. It also serves as a collective medium where any customer (hopefully like yourself) can have access to all the local products under one roof.
But most importantly it serves as a place where the OSA community gets together, to celebrate each other, to revitalize the communal spirit, show care while enjoying produce, music, amazing fresh food and each other's company.
We understand it might not be possible for you to visit us and our beautiful community every Friday, but that does not mean you must deprive yourself from all the fresh produce you wish you could buy and all the delicious food you wish you could be having ! and hence Cajas Verdes were born.
Cajas Verdes are your own personalized green boxes which you can fill up with all the amazing products from the market.
