La Fortuna Costa Rica- the 'Green Market'

Gotta LOVE a Costa Rican ‘GREEN MARKET.’ No matter where you are in Costa Rica- San José or ‘any’ small town, you can be rest assured, they WILL have a green market- complete with ALL the best fruits and vegetables you’ve come to expect from living here. And the tilapia, let’s just say, I’m a fan.

La Fortuna is no different, unfortunately the green market is only once a week- Friday, which makes it hard to stock-up on fruits and veggies for the obvious reason. But we make do, and I guess the ‘once a week’ makes it somewhat of a treat.

We did a little comparison shopping, so WATCH this VIDEO and let us know WHAT YOU PAY in your neck of the woods. Here's another market we found in San Jose.

*Food prices are going up worldwide. We thought we were saving money as far as grocery items go living in Costa Rica, but NOW, not so SURE.
