Both our Selva Holidays rental properties are located near a few weekly organic farmers markets. 

Our favorites are the Saturday market at the Rincon Uvita community centre and the massive San Isidro Feria food market in San Isidro which takes place on Thursdays and Fridays. Both offer a wide range of local and organic produce, meats and seafood as well as tasty treats like homemade breads, organic nuts, chocolate, eggs, cheeses and much more. 

The Uvita market is also a great way to meet and mingle with local food producers and area residents and the San Isidro market offers literally a hundred or so food stands from all over Southern Costa Rica. Get there early to get the best picks in Uvita and the Feria in San Isidro goes strong all day Thursday. By Friday the Feria is generally picked over and sees many of the stands packed up and gone but its also a good day to score some amazing deals on whatever is left. Both markets prices are far below what you would find at home and even around $40 can get you enough fruits and veggies for you and your travel companions to eat like kings for an entire week. Highly recommended! 

Cant make the farmers markets. No problem. Our area is covered in small fruit stands, mobile fruits trucks and food stands along the road sides and even at the beaches. The stands at Playa Hermosa (not to be confused with the Playa Hermosa near Jaco) serve some excellent Civeche and fresh fruit to make your day at the beach refreshing and tasty.
