Where and when to find farmers markets in San Luis Obispo County

San Luis Obispo County knows good food. We farm it, sell it and eat it.

Of course, that lends itself to great farmers markets — and not just on Thursday nights.

Here’s a list of all the county’s farmers markets where you can buy fresh, local fruit, veggies, eggs, meat and more. Taste your way through the Central Coast, and support local farmers along the way.
