HIGH STREET HISTORY

Driving down High Street it's a bit odd to come upon a vintage relic of a building in a funky little neighborhood. For almost 100 years High Street Market and Deli has been serving the city of San Luis Obispo.  Built in 1927, High Street Market and Deli carried everything from milk, butter, chewing tobacco and fishing gear. The area was known as the railroad district and housed many of the workers and their families. When High Street was still a dirt road, those workers would stop in to get a pint of milk, cigarettes and a deli sandwich on the way to and from the railroad station. Throughout a century High Street Market and Deli has been a lot of people's corner store but in the recent years it's become San Luis Obispo's original sandwich joint.
