Southwestern New Mexico Shopping

Old Mesilla Plaza

  • Shopping Neighborhoods

Fodor's Review

High-quality Native American jewelry and crafts are sold at surprisingly good prices in the adobe shops of Old Mesilla Plaza if you have the patience to weed through multitudes of cheesy ceramic Native American dolls with feathered headdresses (not what the locals wore) and other various and sundry tourist tchotchkes. The al fresco Farmers Market offers homegrown produce such as watermelons and green chiles (in season), as well as handcrafted souvenirs and jewelry,

on the plaza noon to 4 Sunday and 11 to 4 Friday year-round. In mid-afternoon on Sunday from September to early November, you can enjoy live mariachi music here, too. Outside the plaza historic district, in Mesilla's newer Mercado shopping area (about a mile northeast, back toward Las Cruces off Avenida de Mesilla), there are a number of interesting contemporary art galleries, a high-end kitchen shop, and restaurants.
