We took a drive yesterday to Vara Blanca for their annual strawberry festival. Combining a visit to one of our favorite areas in Costa Rica with a festival celebrating this delicious fruit, who could ask for more?
One can purchase the ripe berries in their natural state or any number of combinations from marmelades and wine to a wide variety of baked treats.
In addition to strawberry related items for sale one could purchase plants, natural products, hand-made crafts and such.
As usual, we contributed to the local economy coming home with lots of strawberries and strawberry products as well as several items from other vendors.
There certainly is something for everyone at the annual Feria de Fresas in Vara Blanca.
