Indio Open-Air Market
Riverside County Fairgrounds, 46350 Arabia Street, Indio, CA / 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.
