“Safeway is more upscale and a little more expensive than Walmart, but has a great deli, bakery, florist shop, and a Starbucks coffee shop inside! Next door is a Dollar Tree store and further down is a Papa Murphy's take and bake Pizza. In the same parking lot, Humble Joe's Restaurant is a nice diner.”

Park
“Food Trucks line up at the Anderson River Park during Spring and summer months. Its a great place to get that "Fair" food and some other nice selections. Also during summer, the "Mosquito Serenade" is an event with live music on WEDNESDAY evenings starting around 6:30pm at the amphitheater. Some food trucks also are present. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the music.”

Restaurant
“This restaurant is one of our favorites. It is the highest level of American cuisine you will find in the Anderson and Cottonwood area. Redding has a few Restaurants that would be rated higher on our scale. The Woodside Grill is not so high end that you have to worry about dressing up for the meal. Its pretty casual around here and the restaurants are very used to locals dressing in shorts or jeans and tshirts for going out. Great clam chowder on Fridays and always great salads! My daughters love their hamburgers and pastas dishes as well. The menu isn't huge but what you do find on it is quality. Their hours are 6:30am to 2:00pm then 5:00pm to 9:00pm. ”
