5 local produce services that deliver to your door in Costa Rica
Costa Rica offers gorgeous fresh fruits and veggies all year round, but the farmers market usually are held during weekends at VERY early hours of the day, and let's be honest. Who has the energy to wake up early on a Saturday?
But lately, since subscriptions have risen and delivery is on trend, I've been trying some of this services and it's the most convenient, smooth and happy (money saving) solutions for my home.
This is the most complete and friendly service for fruits and veggies. You can buy online at https://www.minyscr.com or contact them via mail and they deliver to your door every day during weekdays.
They grow and pack everything in Cartago, and you can ask for ANY type of veggie, they have or will grow it. If you are craving something you can't find in the supermarket, they will have it.
Quesos Artesanales del Roble
Another delivery service you will fall in love with is this by Don Fernando del Roble. He is the dairy farmer and sells cheeses, milk, yogurt, sour cream, butter. You name it, if it's dairy he'll make it and deliver it to your address once a week. I specially like buying dairy straight from the farmer, this way I am certain it's fresh product and hasn't been pasteurized that many times.
You can order via Whatsapp, check his products on his Facebook page. Also, prices are great, and don Fernando is the cutest!

But if you also need a complete service, such as the whole supermarket shop you should go to Auto Mercado, the delivery service they offer is more expensive than the other options I've talked about here, but you can get soaps, bread, toiletries, wine.
And if you live near certain locations you might get the express service that promises delivery within an hour of the order.
