Well it’s another flurry of activity here in Twentynine Palms and we wouldn’t have it any other way. 
Last week’s Farmers’ Market was the place to be and it continues to get better. This week, we welcome new vendor, “The Ronin Edge”. Bring your favorite knife, household scissors, garden tools and stock up on new knives because they will have custom made on display as well.  Get your fresh produce for the week and have some wonderful food, fresh-squeezed juice and so much more. Let your friends and family know and bring them with you. With your continued support, we will have a Twentynine Palms Farmers’ Market for years to come.
This Saturday, May 12 th , the Elks Lodge #2134 is having a Cleanup Day. We sure could use your help, whether it be to help pick up trash, hand out water or have a burger!
