A great little store, best option in Samara for organic or unprocessed food. Gluten free options available. Not a lot of variety in brands but the brands they do have are excellent. In general, food is expensive in Costa Rica and this little shop is no exception. Nice place to get a fruit smoothie or fresh brewed cup of coffee... More

We stopped in and browsed the store! There are great items from food products, spices, salsas, coffees, and clothing. It is definitely a bit on the pricey side, but you will find things you wouldn't find elsewhere in the area! Check it out!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. We appreciate your support of our market and are very proud to offer organic produce and artisan goods and smoothies.

Nice store to pick up organic products, but the store is small. We bought organic tea, humous and rice crackers from the store.

The owners and staff at Samara Organics are always so helpful in finding what you need or young above and beyond to help answer questions. SO regularly hosts events for the community: bee keeping information, cooking lessons etc. You can find local products and earth friendly products you went find anywhere else. They have some fun souvenirs too.

Awesome, friendly staff. Tuesday Farmers Markets are loaded with beautiful organic produce! Yummy organic coffee! Natural health remedies that are hard to find when traveling in CR. Organic body care products that are made locally. This is a daily stop for our family when we are in Samara.

We stopped in here while on our last trip to Samara. Finding quality, natural and organic foods in Costa Rica is surprisingly difficult. But, at Samara Organics, we were able to find lots of good ingredients and hard to find items (like Braag's Apple Cider Vinegar). They have great smoothies, and a decent selection of coffee, produce and other goodies.... More
