Ever wonder why Redondo Beach is such a supportive place for community and small business? It might have something to do with the North Redondo Beach Business Association (NRBBA).

Each spring the NRBBA produces the annual Springfest event, held in the parking area of the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. From fun carnival rides to gourmet food trucks to vendor booths, South Bay families gather to mingle and enjoy the festivities. The organization also organizes the annual Dine Around event, giving locals an opportunity to 'taste test' many of the excellent dining options located on Artesia Boulevard in North Redondo Beach.

The NRBBA was founded to discuss issues, promote activities and help local business grow. This group of local business owners meets every second Thursday to discuss ways to help promote small business in the area. It’s a great opportunity to connect with other business owners, promote your local business and stay in the loop about news, events and activities in the North Redondo Beach area.

Want to get involved? It’s free to join and all you have to do is attend a meeting once a month, its that simple!

Time: Coffee at 7:45 am  Meeting 8:00-9:00 am

Grab your reusable bags and head over to what some call "The Best Farmers' Market in the South Bay!"

Open twice weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 8am to 1pm, the Torrance Farmer's Market invites you to sample top quality produce brought in each week direct from 60 California farms! The market features a year-round selection of California grown fruits, nuts, vegetables, eggs, honey, baked goods, fish, cut flowers and nursery stock. You'll also find delicious goodies and a variety of ethnic cuisines from local vendors including Thai Tiffany, Bistro Laurent, The Bread Man and more. 

Yelp users rave about the Torrance Farmer's market"The best farmers market in LA, hands down. I have been to the majority of the markets in the southbay and westside and this is the best. It has great vendors, especially those who grow extremely unique heirloom varieties that cannot be found elsewhere. In addition, they have fabulous pre-made food stands such as Afgani, Korean, Greek, Mediterranean, and Italian. This market also is one of the few places that carries raw cream/milk and bison. I cannot say more positive things about this market! LOVE!"

Pro-tip: Locals say the market gets busier on Saturdays, so if you have time mid-week parking and visiting may be less of a hassle on Tuesdays!
