If you’re interested in getting to know this rustic community a little better, here’s a list of things to do and places you can visit that will truly give you a taste of what Inglewood is all about:

9th Avenue

9th Avenue in Inglewood is home to a long stretch of small restaurants and eclectic shops and stores that are easily reached by foot. Craving coffee during a morning stroll? Try stopping by Gravity Espresso and Wine Bar. Hungry for a classic? Inglewood Pizza is the place to go. If you’re looking to do some shopping for furniture or clothing, stop by Limitless or Epsy Experience. If you just want to do simple grocery shopping, M&C Grocery isn’t far.

Night Market

If 9th Avenue isn’t enough, stop by one of Inglewood’s Night Markets. On selected days throughout the year, over 50 food and product vendors line 9th Avenue and 10th Street SE between 5 to 11pm. This bazaar-reminiscent market also features live music and unique street food, so come ready to have fun while you shop!
