SLO Farmers’ Market suspended due to coronavirus outbreak
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif - San Luis Obispo’s iconic Thursday night Farmers’ Market is suspended through April 2nd due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Organizers announced their decision Thursday morning.
They said in an email that the decision was made at the direction of the California Department of Public Health to protect the health and wellness of the community.
