Redondo Beach Farmers Market

Blog, Community News, Events, South Redondo Beach News   |   Dunham Stewart
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.

Redondo Beach Brotherly Love

Blog, Community News, South Redondo Beach News   |   Dunham Stewart
South Bay residents may have spotted Tyler Lucas running along The Strand or playing volleyball on the beach, but they may not realize that he’s running for a greater purpose. Tyler is one-half of “Team Lucas.” The other half is Tysen, his brother. Tysen has a medical condition known as spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, in addition to epilepsy and scoliosis, which keeps him confined to a wheelchair most of the time, but that doesn’t keep the team from entering 5Ks, 10Ks and half-marathons. While Tyler pushes the wheelchair, Tysen provides the motivation. The brothers have competed together in nine races in Southern California, starting with a 5K in Redondo Beach in 2007. Their next race will be the Hollywood Half Marathon. Learn More about Team Lucas: Click Here
