Local farmers and vendors get together to showcase the fruits of their labor every Wednesday from October through June. The CFM is a gathering place where the community can learn about the importance of nutrition, fresh produce and organic options. This occurs next to the Palm Desert Chamber.
The Certified Farmers’ Markets are the Coachella Valley’s only State and County Certified Farmers’ Markets. That means all the fruits, vegetables, meats and other products that are on sale at the markets have been grown on California Certified farms. In addition, almost all the farms are located within a 90 mile radius of the markets (thus reducing the carbon footprint), and many of the products sold are “USDA Certified Organic.”
