Street fair~Our World Tuesday~030513

I don't usually go to places full of people, but Saturday morning I needed to stop by our local street fair and get some photos of vegetables for the Sunday Stills Challenge, so off I went to our local one, which is held at the community college. This is a HUGE street fair during "the season" from October through April, but after that, it's pretty small.  With all the visitors who come to the desert looking for bargains, I'm not sure this is the place to go.  I did find some nice rocks from a vendor who was a former high school science teacher, but otherwise, at least to me, the prices aren't that great a deal.  This is more of a weekend thing to do than a real bargain-hunter's delight.  They also have a good court with lots and lots of wonderful smells, but I avoided that area.  If you want sunglasses or socks or out-of-date dresses, or a purse (I saw one for $75.00), then this is the place to come.  Frankly, I enjoy my thrift stores much more than all of this, but to each his own.  I probably won't return for another year...just too much "stuff" and too many people!  Our World Tuesday for March 5, 2013.  To visit Our World Tuesday, please go to:   http://ourworldtuesdaymeme.blogspot.com/  If you are wondering where this street fair is~~it's at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. every weekend.  There is also a farmer's market with various stalls of fresh produce (see my post from 2 days ago), but it isn't certified organic.  If you wish to buy organic produce, you'll have to visit one of the certified organic markets which are either in Palm Springs or La Quinta on the weekends.

I am like you as far as too many people. I tend to stay away from crowds. The street fair does look like fun and it is colorful. I would like to look at the artwork. Thanks for sharing your world. Have a great day!
