SLO Down for Farmers (Slow Travel - San Luis Obispo)

Thursdays from 4:00 in the afternoon, through 'till about 9:00 p.m is the time to pull over and head for downtown San Luis Obispo (SLO)  for the Farmer's Market, known locally as Farmers

Barbecued locally raised meats galore, a huge variety of ethnic, artisinal and other local eats, live entertainment, alternative and mainstream vendors of every imaginable (and some I never thought of) products, oh and did I forget to mention agricultural produce , mostly local fruits and vegetables along with honey, dairy and meat? Part county fair, part traditional farmer's market this California agricultural tradition is a huge draw for folks all over southern and central CA, not to mention a few like me who live in the Bay Area with our own local markets.

What better excuse for SLOing down the next time you're tooling by on Highway 101?
