What exactly is the Street Fair at College of the Desert? 

It’s an open-air shopping experience in Coachella Valley with literally everything in a mall. Local vendors sell fresh produce, street food, clothes, accessories, utensils, etc. They even have cars on display, live entertainment, and art exhibits. 

The best part is the prices are lower than in the malls.
