Located in downtown Atascadero next to the Sunken Gardens , the grass lawns of the spacious civic center plaza bring the community out for something they look forward to each week. Fresh fruits, vegetables and locally grown produce make for a good meal at home. And don't forget the affordable fresh cut flowers that will last about a week till the next event.

A few of the wineries show up at the local events from time to time, but it's a short drive to the wine trail that offers tasting of a variety of the wines.
