One of the best ways to help the environment, support your community, and provide for your family healthy, fresh, organic food is to buy local and buy in season! How? By visiting the local farmers markets! Redondo Beach has two farmers markets, and both are located in South Redondo. On Thursdays from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., the city hosts a market at Veterans Park that features dozens of vendors that sell produce, meats, cakes, prepared food and more. Riviera Village hosts its own certified farmers market on Fridays from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Avenue I between Catalina Avenue.
Why shop at the farmers market? For starters you’re investing in and strengthening the economy of your community. It’s good for you, the food is fresh (often picked that very day), grown with minimal intervention, nutritious and delicious. Finally farmers markets are (generally) more affordable and/or of higher quality than supermarkets. A couple of tips: Go early for the best selection. Bring cash. Take time to walk around and see whats available. And stay late for best deals.
