Downtown San Luis Obispo Farmers Market:

Barbecued ribs freshly picked produce, specialty booths and live entertainment it's San Luis Obispo's lively Farmers' Market!

Food is cause for a weekly (at least) celebration in San Luis Obispo, CA, where local farms and agriculture thrive in and around the downtown area, growing fresh, seasonal, and flavorful produce year-round—and a trip to San Luis Obispo would not be complete without a stop at the world-famous downtown San Luis Obispo Thursday evening Farmers’ Market.

Taking over the main strip, Higuera Street, in the heart of the city, the Thursday market is the culmination of weekly harvests, plus a full-on community foodie festival that goes on all year (except Thanksgiving Day or if it's raining).

Why go to farmers market?

  • Entertainment for the Whole Family - Thousands of visitors roam the market each week, enjoying free live music and entertainment; unique hand-crafted goods; face painting and other children’s activities; barbecue, corn-on-the-cob and other hot concession stand foods; in addition to the fruits, flowers, veggies, boutique olive oils, local honey, preserves and other locally grown or locally made products.
  • Fresh, Seasonal Produce - Be sure to taste the strawberries and asparagus in spring, tomatoes and cherries in summer, apples and pumpkins in fall, squash and persimmons in winter, and many more deliciously ripe, sustainable and organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Yields to Bicyclists - The Thursday evening market also features a bike valet program for guests who wish to avoid parking challenges and cruise through the charming downtown. (There is also a lively Bike Happening on the first Thursday of each month, following the market, when masses of cyclists loop around downtown in costumes—a must-see for any bicycle enthusiast.)
