This stand at the Tamarindo Farmer's Market is where I get my organic seeds -- flax, sesame, amaranth, sunflower, and more -- for a reasonable price. She sometimes has dried cranberries too, and always has a cooler full of prepared vegan burger patties for sale by the 4-pack. There's soy, black bean, and garbanzo. She makes sandwiches at the Farmer's Market with the burger patty of your choice and some arugula and a veggie spread (carrot/ginger or beet). I'm so glad she's there!
This is a great locals spot in the heart of Matapalo. Lots of pub favs are on the menu, including chicken wings and burgers. Food quality is not that great (the last burger I had was questionable), but some items are nice surprises! Try the fried yucca for example, and the wings are actually not bad either. But rather than going to Charley's for the fine cuisine, mostly it's a comfortable bar where you can stop for a beer or two, watch whatever's on the several televisions, and even sing (or just laugh at) some karaoke. When you're in the mood for a low-key, easy-going, partying kind of place, Charley's definitely fits the bill.
