Farmers' Markets in San Luis Obispo County

Farmers' Markets in San Luis Obispo County

San Luis Obispo's friendly shopping district lights up on Thursday evenings

Thursday evenings year-round, (except Thanksgiving or if it’s raining), the place to be in San Luis Obispo is Higuera Street, home to a farmers' market with the soul of a street party. At this loved-by-locals weekly event, students and families gravitate downtown to pick up containers of Hayashi’s super-sweet strawberries or fresh roasted corn on the cob then catch up with friends. Live music makes a perfect backdrop for perusing all the fresh produce and artisanal foods, and chatting with local farmers.

Other markets abound in this bountiful region. There’s a produce-only farmers' market every Saturday at the San Luis Obispo Promenade shopping center and other gatherings in nearby Los Osos and neighboring communities.
