Ingredients for a Good Time San Luis Obispo's Thursday night farmers' market & markets everyday of the week throughout the county Loosen up with the locals, party with family and friends, and taste the best produce California has to offer at this weekly street fair. For more than 30 years, Thursday night’s Farmers' Market has been the city’s signature event. A large section of the downtown is blocked off for three hours of festival-like fun, and there is something here for everyone. One end of the market is dedicated to produce, and the other showcases local merchants and restaurants. San Luis Obispo's legendary Thursday night Farmers' Market kick starts each weekend throughout the year. From 6-9 p.m. local farmers set up stands along the four blocks of Higuera Street downtown to sell seasonal fruits, specialty herbs, organic vegetables, fresh flowers and the legendary Central Coast barbeque tri-tip sandwiches. Local musicians provide much of the entertainment, setting up concerts on adjoining streets allowing visitors and locals to drift to the tune of a myriad of sounds at their own pace. Most downtown merchants also enjoy the festivities by extending their hours for evening visitors. You will delight in the sights, sounds and smells that make farmers market one of the flagship experiences of the SLO life. Elsewhere on the street, the aroma of flavorful foods from restaurant booths permeates the air. In select spots, BBQ smoke drifts above the crowd, drawing in people for tri-tip steak sandwiches, smoked salmon, ribs, and chicken. If you miss Thursday night's activities, don't worry we have a market everyday of the week just for you!
