The handiwork and crafts in the shop are simply incredible and celebrate the diverse indigenous tribes throughout Costa Rica.
This fairtrade gallery was filled with amazing art from many cultures throughout Costa Rica.

It is an interesting maze and mix of stalls with merchandise ranging from touristy souvenirs to local herbal pharmacy products to restaurant supplies to pet store to sodas (casual quick food) and a coffee shop.
I was surprised at the variety of things available, fun to see everything! It’s a lot of little shops all under one roof, lots of people, and small sit down restaurants.

Across the main road from the National Museum on Calle 17, a small wonderful shop and museum showcasing and selling crafts from the Indigenous people.
This wonderful shop is owned by a very friendly couple who have worked with indigenous people for many years when they were working for an NGO in Costa Rica.

It was a great 2 hours visit in the Mercado' we enjoy the shopping of souvenirs and mainly the smell from the fast food shops and the local bands who play local music over the weekend between the shops
It's a new building (Calle 5 & Av 6) with wide isles and flat floors that is easy to walk around in. Basically a series of small shops selling a huge variety of souvenirs and in some cases very similar items.

This place is amazing!! Barry Biesanz gave me a tour of the shop and gardens, I learned a lot about the wood he uses and the time and care he takes to craft these amazing works of art.
He encouraged us to touch everything to feel the quality, and then left us to wander the showroom to look at all of the pieces.
