Every Tuesday, fresh local organic produce comes in here. It's worth picking up if you are doing your own cooking, as we did while we were here. Great staff as well, with good English, and more than willing to help!

We shopped here numerous times while in Samara. Love the smoothies and healthy drinks. Also bought some crafts and coffee while there. Part of a nice courtyard with a few great restaurants and shops.

We ate at the Sub cafe and our burritos were fresh and light. Our son loved his smoothie.

This store has a small Farmer's Market set up outside on Tuesdays and Fridays. My Wife and I bought some bananas and enjoyed some delicious smoothies. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

A great little store, best option in Samara for organic or unprocessed food. Gluten free options available. Not a lot of variety in brands but the brands they do have are excellent. In general, food is expensive in Costa Rica and this little shop is no exception. Nice place to get a fruit smoothie or fresh brewed cup of coffee... More
