Every Tuesday morning from 7:45 – 11:00am people flock to the Rainbow Organic Farmer’s market in Playa Guiones, Costa Rica. The market has an assortment of organic greens, fruits, snacks, and even more diverse staples such as cheese and fish. It’s a nice spot to visit, and its located right on the road to Playa Guiones’ main beach entrance – you may pass it on your way to the surf. It’s a pop-up location that comes to life once a week — so if its not Tuesday morning you won’t find it.
If you know you’ll be in town, Rainbow Organic has an online pre-ordering system. That way, they’ll be sure to have the veggies you want, as they do often sell out. Visit RainbowOganic.cr to pre-order by Saturday 10AM and pick up your order at the following Tuesday market. If you have not pre-ordered, its helpful to arrive early for the best selections. But as these photos imply — of strangers who allowed me to photograph them at the market — the friendly vibe will last whatever time you arrive.
