Nomad Mercado

A New Mexico Marketplace

Arts, crafts, specialty foods. The Nomad Mercado was created to connect New Mexico artists and businesses with a larger audience.

Georgia O'Keeffe

"All the earth colors of the painter's palette are out there in the many miles of badlands."

New Mexico has a fantastic local food scene. In most communities, you are doing yourself a disservice if you eat at chain restaurants.

Whereas it would be overwhelming to catalogue all of them, here are some local favorites. Feedback, suggestions and tips from other locals is welcomed and appreciated!
