Great news is blooming this spring – Coachella Valley farmers’ markets are open across our resort cities. You can get fresh fruits and veggies, coffee and tea, artisan cheeses, breads, pastas, meats, seafood, and other delicious, locally sourced products in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and La Quinta. In addition to fresh fare, vendors with a variety of items for sale are on-hand, including clothing, flowers, handmade crafts and gifts, and more. Each market has implemented safety protocols, including mandatory masking, safe social distancing, touchless shopping, and more, to ensure everyone who attends can have a healthy and happy experience valley-wide.
