Everything created by nature is organic to a certain extent. In terms of food, most
human beings look for a diet full of nutritious and healthy food that allows us to have
a greater wellbeing.
As a general definition Organic food is grown without the use of synthetic chemicals,
such as human-made pesticides and fertilizers, and does not contain genetically
modified organisms (GMOs).
Nowadays there is a greater awareness regarding food consumption from a
perspective that tries to avoid more industrialized products. Organic food comes from
organic agriculture, a production system that uses agricultural methods that respect
nature and the environment. No chemicals are used that would modify the food and
affect its natural properties.
In addition, this method also seeks to have a more sustainable relationship with the
production of natural food. In order to promote the conservation of the environment
and the health of people as well as animals.
Organic food is one of the most adopted solutions to take care of the general
organism’s wellbeing. While a few years ago organic food was only found in
specialized stores, now it is present in supermarkets and restaurants.
In the community of Nosara this form of consumption has been implemented, here
there are many possibilities of places that not only offer food but also other products
that follow an organic style. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in
offering quality products to the population.
Some of the places that you can find in Nosara right now are; La Feria (The Nosara
Market), where farmers from the area come to sell their products, as well as other
local people who also offer handicrafts products. It is quite an experience to visit this
place. Orgánico Grocer & Café, is another special place that offers dishes created by
100% natural products, as well as other organic products.
Organico Deli-Market, Eden Organic, Organico Giovanni´s Nosara Best, these are
other places offering fruits, vegetables and organic products, which include a
certified quality and sustainable with the environment. There are also other markets
that have organic vegetable gardens and whose products come from these gardens,
as is the case of the Gaia Organic Market.
There is no doubt that at present Nosara has a variety of options in the market that
can facilitate your diet and consumption of organic products. Also, more and more
people also have as projects organic gardens in their homes or independent farms
that can be another ecological and economical alternative.
And remember the importance of consuming organic products lies not only in their
benefits for the environment, but also for health. For example, the standards that
regulate organic products limit the use of pesticides and industrial components in
their cultivation methods. They are also free of hormones, antibiotics, heavy metal
residues, colorants, artificial flavorings and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
