What is Foster?
To some it’s just a road but we know it’s much, much more. Foster is home to cafés, restaurants, and bars featuring comfort food, international cuisine and everything in between. Do you like art? We’ve got several galleries. If you’re into movement we have dance performances; if you’re more into moving yourself you can take lessons from one of the best tango teachers in the country. And there’s always music to be found.
If shopping is your thing we have stores galore. Toys, games, vintage, music, food, art supplies… the list goes on. You’ll find lots of helpful services for your car, finances, health, and legal needs. And we’re proud that Foster is home to several organizations that give those in need a helping hand.
The next time you find yourself in Foster, take a look around. You just might find what you’re looking for- or maybe even something you didn’t know you needed.
