Indio Open-Air Market on Wednesdays & Saturdays:
Riverside County Fairgrounds, 46350 Arabia Street, Indio, CA
/ Wednesday, November 1, 2017: New and used, brand-name merchandise
is discovered at the Indio Open-Air Market, held from 4-10 p.m.,
Wednesday and Saturday (except during Date Festival), at the
Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival Fairgrounds.
The architecture of the fairgrounds is that of a city in Morocco,
and in that way is perhaps the most interesting of the fairgrounds
to be found in Southern California. The market fills the palm
tree fringed parking area of the fairgrounds. Shoppers can watch
the sunset while buying "fresh from the field" produce
picked that morning by our vendors. A trip for produce should
always include the fresh dates that are grown in the immediate
area. Nearly everything for the entire family can be found at
reasonable prices by browsing the many aisles with the moon
as your companion. This is a very social marketplace and friends
gather to shop and eat here. For more information, call 800-222-7467
