The Market in the city of Granada is located in one of the colonial style buildings, built in the late nineteenth century. It is the main site to find fruits and vegetables grown in the area. Very early in the morning, you will find many people visiting this site to do their shopping. It is a very busy place, but there are always enough products for everyone. Oranges, papayas, melons, avocados, pineapple, cucumbers etc., are some of the products purchased by the Jicaro Island Ecolodge that are used in the preparation of dishes and delicious juices.
Karen Emmanuel, owner of Jicaro, recently visited this market to meet one of our local suppliers of fruit and vegetables and spent some time walking through the market to talk to buyers and sellers, learning more about local life. In the future, Jicaro plans to plant orchards with families located on the Isletas to help them improve their quality of life.
