The flea market concept  in Costa Rica by way of the “ferias”  common every weekend in most small towns and communities around the greater metropolitan area of San José and the “mercados” that are municipal run markets in large communities.

In many community, the ferias are a great way to buy fruits and vegetables directly from the local farmers, crafts from local artisans and a variety of items usually at a lower cost than at a retail outlet.

Ferias are not to be confused with the ‘artisan’ and “souvenir” stands in high traffic tourist areas, where prices are generally higher.
