For a foodie-friendly cultural experience, don't miss this fabulous Saturday farmers market, a weekly meeting place for San José's artists and organic growers since 2010. You'll find organic coffee, artisanal chocolate, tropical-fruit ice blocks, fresh produce, leather, jewelry and more at the long rows of booths set up in the park at the north end of Barrio Aranjuez.

Don't miss the mouthwatering samples of cured trout and fish dip, which an enthusiastic German expat loves feeding to passersby. Another instance of Feria Verde happens in Barrio Colón on Tuesdays from 1pm to 7pm
