The Palm Springs Cultural Center today announced that it will celebrate the first anniversary of the opening of its popular Palm Desert location with a give-aways, a birthday cake, and a special ribbon-cutting ceremony this coming Wednesday, February 10, 2010. The Palm Desert location opened on February 11, 2009, and has become quite popular with local residents and visitors alike.
The market will be open from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm as usual, but the ceremony will take place promptly at 10am. Palm Desert officials will join Palm Springs Cultural Center founders Ric and Rozene Supple to cut the ribbon.
The City of Palm Desert has been a wonderful partner for us,” said Paul Palodichuk, Manager of the Palm Springs Cultural Center’s Certified Farmers’ Markets. “So we are particularly excited to be marking this very special occasion with them.”
The Certified Farmers Market is sponsored by the Palm Springs Cultural Center. It operates in three locations, and on three different days of the week, as follows:
- On Saturdays in Palm Springs, from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm, adjacent to the Camelot Theatres in the Palm Springs Mall parking lot at 2300 E. Baristo Road at Farrell.
