FARMERS MARKETS OF SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY

 

Did you know that back in the early 1980’s, the city of San Luis Obispo blocked off Higuera Street to prevent teenagers from cruising in cars on Thursday evenings? Rumor has it that a local resident returning from a trip to Italy came up with the idea of using the empty street for a Farmers Market, like they had experienced in Italy … and San Luis Obispo's Farmers Market was born!

Did you know that San Luis Obispo County is home to one of the oldest and largest Farmers Markets located within the United States?

Family Fun Night!

Since 1983, every Thursday night the main street of San Luis Obispo is blocked off and dozens of farmers set up their booths. Here you will find farm fresh vegetables and fruit, organic produce, flowers, food and entertainment. This downtown Farmers Market has attracted thousands of people who come not only to make purchases, but to enjoy the atmosphere. It's truly “fun for all” … and a great “family fun” night!
