World's Longest Garlic Braid.

Garlic World, World's Longest Braided Garlic

Right on the 101, Garlic World is one of many of the fruit and veggie stands along this stretch of farming community. However here you will find ample parking on a paved lot, a super cheesy photo op to put your face on, a huge plywood jar of garlic, and picnic tables.

Inside are examples of old timey garlic presses, a sample bar of pickled garlic and stuffed olives, and awards and displays of garlic braiding including the World's Longest Garlic Braid. Don't pass up the garlic-flavored ice cream in the back cooler.
