Shop Until You Drop At These 3 Santa Fe Shopping Districts

Santa Fe Plaza

The Santa Fe Plaza is much more than just a plaza. It is the city’s center filled with some of the area’s best shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Like much of Santa Fe, the Plaza area is very pedestrian-friendly with many small streets lines with bright and colorful storefronts. You’ll likely find many vendors selling beautiful, handmade items along the streets while exploring the area. You’ll also find dozens of shops! Some of ours include Tom Taylor, Detours at La Fonda, Shalako Indian Store, Café Pasqual’s, Maya Gallery, The Original Trading Post, and Five & Dime General Store.

Local Tip: If you visit Five & Dime General Store, you have to try the Frito Pie, a local favorite!

Canyon Road

Although there are galleries across Santa Fe, more than 75 art galleries call Canyon Road making it the main art district in the city. If you’re looking to take home some one-of-a-kind Southwest art, you’re sure to find something you love here. Walking down Canyon Road is a truly immersive experience. You will find bountiful and varied art, some of Santa Fe’s finest restaurants, and a one-of-a-kind cultural experience that will add a deeper level of appreciation for anyone who visits our fine city. It’s hard to choose but just a few of our favorite art galleries include Canyon Road Contemporary Art, Adobe Gallery, and Morning Star Gallery.

The Railyard

The Santa Fe Farmers’ Market called the Railyard home. Since moving to the area in 1990s, the Railyard has turned into one of the city’s hottest districts. Not only will you find amazing shops, the area boasts lots of entertainment, arts, and dining. The farmers’ market opens Tuesday and Saturday year-round making it a great place to shop local produce. Some of our favorite shops in the area include The Raven, Casa Nova, and Tres Cuervos.
