Costa Rica – Open Markets and Mom – Pop Stores

Costa Rica - Open Markets and Mom - Pop StoresI remember when I was a youngster (long time ago) and my grandfather would take me to the corner store and buy me a coke and candy. I thought it was the greatest. Those stores in the states were usually family owned and there was a feel of community.

 
Clothes, hardware, restaurants and grocery stores all gave way to the giant chains in America. Costa Rica shopping is not so different but here in Costa Rica there are chains also but the corner stores and a family owned business is alive and well.
 
Costa Rica living is much easier and almost every town has an open market of vegetables and fruits usually on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The prices are very good and many people shop every week at the open markets.Clothes, hardware, restaurants and grocery stores all gave way to the giant chains in America. Costa Rica shopping is not so different but here in Costa Rica there are chains also but the corner stores and a family owned business is alive and well.

 

You can even see a truck with fruits and vegetables going through the neighborhoods . I consider it a slice of nostalgia going back in time – but a time that only brings back fond memories .Mom and pop store in San Antonio de Escazu

It is a part of Costa Rica I really enjoy .

If you are looking to buy a home in Costa Rica or invest in a condo anywhere in the central Valley, or looking for any property for sale in Escazu, you need to call me. I have been selling real estate in Escazu for over 20 years and can show you hundreds of happy buyers of real estate in Escazu and other areas. To me, a deal is not a good deal unless both buyer and seller are happy.
