Every Saturday starting at around 8:00 AM, the Uvita Farmers Market starts up and runs until about 1:00. This is the place to get your organic food needs for the week and quite a bit more.
There are local artisans who regularly display their wares there, as well as some excellent jams, jellies, hot sauces, organic palm oil, pink Himalayan salt, baked goods organic chicken and eggs etc.
There is a big side benefit to visiting the farmers market, especially if you want to get a taste of the the local expat culture. There are vendors there who live in the area, but who are from all parts of the world: Italy, France, Germany the US and Canada are generally fairly well represented.
Here is a taste of what's there:
Ian and Faith
They can usually be found just to the right as you
Faith hand-makes custom jewelry with an eye for the "fine". Necklaces and ear-rings make up the bulk of her display, but custom orders almost always result in a happy customer.
Ian does some fine wood working in local exotic hardwoods. He is a master over the wood, so any request can be met, but his claim to fame are his pens.
