Small agri-food businesses in Costa Rica have a two-day festival where operators will show off their goods at the Feria El Gustico Costarricense Saturday and Sunday. The food fair will take place at the Antigua Aduana and run both days from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The majority of the vendors are women producers from rural areas all over the country. These women dedicate themselves to cultivation of products that are exotic, innovative and
traditional, according to a press release by Instituto Nacional de las Mujeres.
Vendors will offer cooking lectures, music, and shows with Costa Rican famous national chefs. Some of the featured items at the expo will be lactose products from cow, goat and buffalo. There will also be products made from cacao, coffee, jellies, jams, and flour. Besides cooking ingredients there will be well-being products such as natural cosmetics, medicines, and personal care. The Antigua Aduana is in east San José on Calle 23 just north of the Estación al Atlántico train station.
