Known for being an important rail center and orchard land back in the day, the small city of Campbell has rapidly grown to become a suburban neighborhood with over 40,000 residents. Campbell continues to retain its small-town identity regardless of its high-tech neighbor cities. Its historical downtown offers the community a variety of vibrant shops, bars, and restaurants worth exploring.
Every Sunday, the Campbell Farmers’ Market pops up in downtown and stretches across Campbell Avenue—rain or shine. Considered to be one of the best year-round Farmers’ Markets in the South Bay, this market offers the community a variety of fresh produce grown locally by California farmers. But, it doesn’t stop there. This mini-festival also offers crafts vendors, live music, and small-batch kitchen goods such as pastries, hummus, beauty products, and local artwork.
A small mom-and-pop shop, Redemption is a shopping boutique that supports and highlights the local people that help make California the unique state it is. With a strong belief in supporting the community, the owners have placed great care in selecting and curating all of their merchandise. Focused on sustainable and ethical production, the shop offers men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, skin care products, baby items, home decor, and cool gifts. Visitors can also say hello to the shop dog, Boomerang.
With the objective of providing fresh, healthy drinks with no additives, Kwench Juice does just that. Inspired by her dad’s illness, the owner, Reena Williams, spent many years creating juices from fresh-cut fruits, which resulted in this juice heaven located at the entrance of downtown Campbell. At the shop, patrons will find many types of smoothies, juices, or hybrids of both. Offering something for everyone, Kwench is the perfect spot for a healthy pick-me-up.
The only florist shop on the block, Petite Petal has quickly made a name for itself by providing only the best floral arrangements, plants, terrariums, and succulents in the community. Petite Petal also offers a number of workshops for those seeking to learn more about flower arrangements and do-it-yourself flower halos. From weddings and birthday parties to bridal and baby showers, this shop makes the floral magic happen.
With a strong foundation, the Marie Stinnett Dance Studio has become a space where emerging or experienced dancers can train or dance for fun. The studio has been opening its doors to people of all ages and levels since 1958 with a focus on jazz, tap, and musical theater.
