For almost six decades the historic Mercado Borbón has opened its doors to Costa Rican families to provide quality products daily.

The launch of the new strategy, Mercado Borbón Virtual, involves Coopeborbón associates allied with “Digital Solidarity”. From fresh onions, garlic, repollo (cabbage), platano, carrots, eggplant, aguacate, carrots, tomatoes, pineapple and much, much more, online customs can make their purchases from their computers or smartphones, at a good price, have it delivered to their home or office.

Martha Estrada, manager of the Cooperative, said that the idea is for the market to reinvent itself to attract new consumers who for different reasons do not visit.
