Downtown SLO’s Farmers’ Market
June 1, 2023
Attending the Farmers’ market is a popular pastime in San Luis Obispo County. Several markets occur each week, with the largest of these events located in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. This college town farmer’s market has over 100 vendors, a community of certified farmers, prepared food vendors, food and craft artisans, live entertainment acts, and other retailers, services, and community-based groups. The SLO Farmers’ Market occurs every Thursday from 6-9 pm, you can drive, carpool, take the bus, ride your bike, walk, or use any preferred mode of transportation, and head down to San Luis Obispo where you will find a lively crowd. Here is a setting of the scene, and an overview of last month’s market.
Cal Poly Influence
Cal Poly students participate in large numbers with multiple student-run clubs set up along the curbs serving as informational sources, fundraisers, or promotions for upcoming projects.
The market is a significant scene for local bands and advertisements for their upcoming shows as well as festivals.
The largest portion of the Farmers’ market is exactly what is advertised, farmers. If you’re local many of the vendors you’ll see are familiar family names; such as Y. Hayashi Farms, and Bautista Farms.
Live Entertainment Acts
Each Thursday this market will bring you something different.
