Farmers Market, San Luis Obispo, California

Central Coast Produce

Wood Grilled Artichokes and Meats

San Luis Obispo Farmers Market

I was visiting the beautiful Central Coast this weekend and timed my arrival in San Luis Obispo to attend the hugely popular Thursday night market. This farmers market on closed downtown streets is the place to be, with a few blocks of food stalls, fresh picked local vegetables and musical performances too. There were lots of big cowboy style live fire BBQ pits with lines of people waiting for the fresh off the grill food; beef Tri-tip was the biggest seller. I went straight to a stall featuring wood roasted corn served on the cob sprinkled with spices and lemon then I bought some Carne Asada tacos, all really good. The market is open rain or shine every Thursday night on Higuera Street from 6-9pm.
