Beautiful produce and a vegan stall or two

Posted on 08 / 08 / 2013

Yes, there are a few places selling charred dead body parts here, but they are all clustered at one end of the market, so I just skipped around them (careful to walk up-wind of them!) and continued on. There is a lot of beautiful fresh produce here, I ate a huge amount of the sweetest strawberries ever!! So delicious. Also, the vegan cafe in town, Bliss, does a stall here serving mains and sweets. There's another stall called the Hommus Factory selling all kinds of flavoured hommus variations, plus prepared chickpeas, pitas, chips and more, nearly all vegan (all vegetarian). There's stalls selling roasted corn, and you can select vegan items from the choice of toppings. I'm sure if you asked in other food stalls, more vegan items would turn up.

Pros: great for raw fooders or self caterers, at least 2 veggie stalls with yummy food, atmosphere
Cons: billowing smoke from roasted dead bodies

Why is this listed here??

The San Luis Obispo downtown Thursday evening Farmers Market is really more of a block party, and truthfully, it is really geared to and promoting - yikes.....BarBeCue.....aaarrrrggghhh.
It's true, there is some kind of history in the town with barbecue, I wasn't listening much when the local I queried about the number of flesh fires excitedly explained. But, this is still a fun event. A Band, non-profit groups, lots of food vendors beyond the barbecue folks, even a few veggie and one or two vegan items available, but you have to hunt for them. Also, farmers, though they seemed to be outnumbered by the info, food vendor, and Cal-Poly booths.
I've yet to go to the Saturday FM. Next time i'm in town.

Pros: Outdoor free block party
Cons: meat core, hard to navigate
