Default University towns-best 4 busking

Best places I've found are Iowa City, Iowa- on the downtown mall. If you can find a party store near ANY major university campus- they work great-on Thurs, Fri and Saturday nights after 9p.m. Masses of students going in to by beer, etc.. I usually start playing without any permission. If you are a good performer and get a crowd (not too big) the owners of the store or the police will not bother you. Police and store owners in University towns are much more open-minded and encourage busking as opposed to a town which may have more crime. Police departments in those cities are too stressed and may often feel the need to let off steam by hassling buskers.

Farmers markets on Sat. mornings are great.
