Every Wednesday morning from October through May, Palm Desert is fortunate to have a Certified Farmers' Market set up in front of the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce at 72559 Highway 111. Farm-fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, plus cheese, eggs and more are sold directly by the growers and producers. Entertainment is provided, and the neighboring Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert participates by offering free yoga classes in their outdoor sculpture garden.
