Cool Place to Walk Around Weekend Mornings
Mar 2020 • Family
I have gone to this market every time I am in Palm Springs (Palm Desert). All the local vendors set up their stores - some with very unique items. If you are a fan of local art, food and boutique style shopping, then the Street Fair is for you.

Great for the family.

Washrooms are on site.

Lots of free parking.

Food vendors.

Unique gifts and trinkets.

Saturday and Sunday 7 to 2pm.

Check local listing for seasonal dates.

Sunday morning visit to the swap meet
Feb 2020 • Friends
I went with a bunch of friends that had been before they really enjoyed it. I didn't find much of anything that interested me. There were good prices on luggage and lots of jewelry and quite a few clothes. Most seemed of pretty good quality just not something I wanted. It was a good time to spend time with friends and enjoy the weather.

A must visit street fair
Feb 2020
We went on a Sunday afternoon in late February and it was so busy. There are so many vendors. The number of vendors seems up from a couple of years ago. So much metal art, leather goods, sunglasses, jewelry. The line ups for food were really long so we did not eat. We had planned to but there was no seating room left and vendors lined up 20 deep. Lots of fun. Plan on 4 hours minimum

Fun Time & Delicious Lunch
Feb 2020
Fun vendors, produce and delicious lunch! Parking was plentiful. Many booths for everyone's different interest. If purchasing a kitchen gadgets with blades, I chose to mail to our home to avid TSA confiscating at the airport.

Great Street Fair, Quality Products
Feb 2020
This is a great street fair to spend a couple of hours at .The products are varied on what is offered and the quality of these products are good to very good. Prices are fair. There is plenty of parking and free shuttle services.

Above average fair with the usual stuff

Seems more folks are wandering around than buying..... just like us. Other than fresh produce, everything else is cheaper elsewhere. The dates, berries and fresh fruits are the Best Buy’s. People watching is definitely senior citizen dominated.....

The smart place to park, closer than most lots, is on Date Palm just across from the entrance!

We stopped here because a friend recommend it. It's a nice place to walk around but the shopping items aren't so great. This place is more for retirement age customers.
