Also operating in Palm Springs and La Quinta, the Certified Farmers’ Markets are sponsored by the Palm Springs Cultural Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which was established to encourage the development of the cultural arts in the Coachella Valley with a specific focus in the areas of film, fine art, live performance, dance, music, and community festivals. The Center is dedicated to advancing education, nurturing community-wide participation in the cultural arts, and sponsoring scholarship awards for deserving individuals.


 As temperatures rise in our Palm Springs Valley, refresh yourself at the Certified Farmers Market in Palm Desert with a Cucumber Chili Lime, Date Chai Spiced, Peach Lemonade, or other popsicle “handmade with love”. From The Coachella Valley Brewing Company booth, purchase a craft beer with which to hydrate later. Take a stroll through The Garden & Faye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden to feed your soul. And, savor a happy hour (or more) at nearby gourmet restaurants Cuistot and La Spiga Ristorante. Be cool!
