You can find a lot of surprising things at the downtown SLO Farmers' Market these days. Ancient grains and superfoods you didn't know you needed in your life? Sure! Cured meats, fine cheeses, and even growlers of craft beer? Heck yes! Your old high school boyfriend? Awkwardly true as well. However, you should not (at this point) be the least bit surprised to see bands rocking out on the Harvest Stage located in the Union Bank parking lot at Osos and Higuera. Savor the rest of your summer with chill tunes happening each Thursday eve from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. through Oct. 4. Beer and wine are always available for purchase from Central Coast Brewing and wine from Chamisal Vineyards, and the concert itself (like Farmers' market) is always free! Sorry, I can't help you with making conversation with your ex's kids. Just stuff your mouth full of fresh strawberries and slowly back away.
