Pioneertown is a fun outing around 25 minutes west of our house. Variety of shops, food, and entertainment. Check online for the schedule of music (Pappy & Harriet’s), comedy, and drive in movies - some stuff is just once a month. Mercado Mojave is an outdoor market usually on Saturdays.

Food scene

For such a small town, Joshua Tree has amazing food. Yucca and 29 have some great food spots too. We cook a lot at home when we’re in town but we always eat out or takeout at least once. Some places have long waits on weekends so be ready for that. It's usually worth the wait. There are a lot of fun art shops nearby to browse while you wait.
One of our favorite places for dinner - also great for breakfast, lunch, or a drink. Live music or karaoke several nights a week. Indoor and outdoor seating. This is one of the only places to go out for dinner or drinks late at night in town.

Delicious breads (especially the sourdoughs) and pastries. They also have some take and bake dishes if you want to eat at home. They close early afternoon.

Great spot for breakfast or lunch. Outdoor and indoor seating. You can order on the phone for pickup if you’re in a rush (unless they’re too busy). My favorite is the breakfast burrito but they have a diverse menu.

This is our favorite spot in Yucca to stop on the way in or out of JT. Great coffee, breakfasts, salads, and tartines. Nice spot to hang out too. They close in the afternoon so sometimes we order to go so we can have it for dinner.

Locally roasted coffee. You can find it in many of the local eateries, and the farmer's market, but it's fun to buy from the source as well. Sometimes crowded, you might want to order ahead on their website if you're in a rush.

Shopping

After the park and the food, our favorite thing in JT is the shopping. Lots of outdoor markets and artists and thrift shops. Great way to meet nice people too.
Now the Joshua Tree Street Market. Hours depend on the season. As of May 2022, Saturdays midday and at night, different locations. Local artists, crafts, music. We bought our globe lamp and other stuff in the house at this market (when it was the Night Market).

In Yucca Valley. #11 on this map, across/near Best Western. Jennifer has great vintage clothes and other cute vintage stuff and her own creations. She made the globe-lamp in the California Room, we bought it from her at the Night Market. Have bought clothes from her as well. She’s great - stop by and say hi and check out her shop!

Outdoor market with lots of artists and crafts and locally made products. We used to go often when it was in JT. Now (writing this in Jan 2022) it’s in Pioneertown on Saturdays, 10am-4pm. Good excuse to check out Pioneertown!
