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 stumbled upon this shop just as it was closing, but it was one of my favorite places at playa samara. Great healthy food options and beautiful handmade items!

We ate at the Sub cafe and our burritos were fresh and light. Our son loved his smoothie. It was interesting to sit in this partially enclosed and partially open air "mall" and watch daily life passing by.

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

We stopped in and browsed the store! There are great items from food products, spices, salsas, coffees, and clothing. It is definitely a bit on the pricey side, but you will find things you wouldn't find elsewhere in the area! Check it out!
