The Palm Springs Cultural Center is pleased to announce the opening dates for the 2011/2012 season of its Certified Farmers’ Market locations as follows:

“At this point, we expect to have all our regular farmers back,” said Paul Palodichuk, Market Manager. “We’ve also added several new farms that I think our customers will be pleased to see.”


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 more than 60% of the products sold are “USDA Certified Organic.”


All Certified Farmers’ Market locations now accept CalFresh EBT Cards, WIC Farmers’ Market Checks, and Senior Farmers’ Market Checks, and the New Coachella Market even has matching funds available for EBT Cal Fresh Recipients!
