Need a unique hat, sunglasses, jewelry or clothing? Or not sure what you need today? Check out Street Fair Shopping at College of the Desert. With over 300 vendors, you’re bound to find something interesting. The Street Fair is open every Saturday and Sunday year round. During season, it is open from 7am to 2pm, and in the summer it closes at noon.
The booths at the Street Fair are located inside a covered parking area of the College of the Desert, better known as COD. Vendor booths span over 20 categories. There’s apparel, home décor, jewelry, art, cosmetics, crafts and so much more. If you get there early, parking is easy to come by. There’s even a free shuttle to take you from your car to the vendor area if walking is a challenge. In addition to merchandise, there is a food court area with lots of choices ranging from coffee to snacks to full meals
As we perused the rows and rows of vendor products, we were surrounded by the views of the San Jacinto and San Gorgonio mountains. The perfect weather and fresh air was so enjoyable. Make sure you visit the the section with farmer’s produce and locally made food items. The strawberries were at their peak as well as other items that made for good meals throughout the week.
Street Fair Shopping at College of the Desert is one of the many activities to enjoy in Coachella Valley. If you need ideas about other things to do, or if you are looking to buy a home, please contact me! I’m a full time desert resident and love living in paradise.
