There were are few things on our list that we didn’t find at the Ley so, when we got back to San Carlos, we visited Tony, another entrepreneur who saw a need and filled it.

Tony brings his selection of foods to a covered, outdoor site in San Carlos each weekday and does a VERY brisk business. He speaks English, a big draw for the snowbirds, and brings a beautiful, handpicked selection, everything fresh: vegetables, fruits, juices, breads (banana bread, too), filleted fish, salsa, a bit of meat… His prices are much steeper than Ley or the tiny market in town, but his quaint setup, astute selection, and efficient service attract us gringos who find his prices lower than we would pay at home.
