Lots of new things are going on at the Saturday farmers’ market. The group PAWS now has adorable animals for adoption and is selling T-shirts and coffee mugs to raise money for taking care of the animals. Quincy Reed is making cheese, baked goods and roast beef sandwiches, and there are two organic stands as well as other stands selling more than just vegetables and fruit. For a pleasant surprise, check out the market every Saturday at the waterfront in Quepos, before the marina.
A new BarefootChurch on the Beach ministry is coming to Manuel Antonio. This is a nondenominational, welcoming outreach ministry that believes all people are created and loved by God. Services will be conducted at Café del Mar on Playa Espadilla in Manuel Antonio beginning Sunday, Sept. 5. For more information, contact Pastor Rick Kendle at 8719-2918.
Mark and Karen Whitmire are the new proprietors of La Hacienda restaurant. Stop by and give them a Quepos welcome. They are keeping the same music nights, so don’t miss Kezirah aka Fuzzy Rojas on Mondays.
Starting in September, Billfish Sports Bar and Grill at Hotel Byblos will open early Sundays to accommodate the upcoming NFL season, presenting everyone’s favorite teams via satellite on large-screen TVs.
