Last week for an unknown reason ... lots of people didn't receive their copy of the Vine ... it is a mystery still to us and I apologize profusely and am very grateful to know so many people miss it when it doesn't show up in your mailbox. Here is last's week's Vine ... I particularly love the photo and hoped every one could enjoy it. If you ever miss one ... please check this page on the website.

Our Perez Zeledon feria will be having regular hours during the Christmas / New Years Weeks ... the Tinamastes feria will be open on Mondays for those two weeks.

We offer Xpress delivery service throughout our area ... and throughout Costa Rica via various Transport companies for any of our products (see Gourmet Product Page) ... as well as we can do some limited shopping at the PZ feria for you.

Ever wonder what pets or wild animals actually think about and communicate? Begin 2019 with a new skill to connect to Nature with animist Kay Lindstrom, a student animal communicator, in an all-day participatory seminar amidst the wilds of Nature at La Joya del Sol farm in the Diamante Valley. One of the attendees will be bringing their dog so Kay can lead a live demonstration. You will learn to: - Rekindle your innate ability to communicate with all forms of life, especially animals, through feeling and sensing - Perceive via feeling and sensing the supernatural powers of how alive our world really is through animism - Connect via practical and esoteric approaches to increase mutual understanding, knowing the animal’s needs, thoughts and feelings You’ll also receive a list of resources for further study and a gourmet vegan lunch provided by internationally acclaimed plant-based Chef Eric Rivkin (

Parking in San Isidro on the street free until the first of the year!
