Every Tuesday in front of the historic Bixby Band Shell from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm (3:00 pm - 8:00 pm in summer), residents can expect to see farm fresh fruits and veggies, field cut flowers, gourmet specialty foods, fresh cooked fare, arts & crafts, live music and more.
Lee Ostendorf, a native and resident of Long Beach is the director of Local Harvest Farmers Markets, a certified farmers market that operates in Marine Stadium, Huntington Beach, Buena Park, Wilmington, San Pedro and Garden Grove. Ostendorf grew up going to Bixby Park with her parents and grandparents and fondly remembers Iowa Picnics.
The idea for a farmers market grew out of discussions between Claudia Schou (Friends of Bixby Park) and Councilmember Lowenthal hoping to activate the park and inspire community members to become more involved at Bixby Park.
