We visited the La Quinta farmers market while on vacation there for a few days and really liked old town. If we lived there I could see visiting frequently for the market and many nice shops/restaurants and the farmers market

The lighting of the Christmas tree in Old Town will have already happened. Sunday mornings usually has a farmers market in old town but I am sure that won't happen on Christmas morning. I recommend going to the old La Quinta... More
