Santa Fe Shopping in the Summer

Santa Fe Shopping

Santa Fe shopping is an experience to be remembered.  Take a walk around Santa Fe’s historic plaza and the concentration of shops in that area, and you will discover what makes Santa Fe shopping so remarkable.  Storefronts sit wrapped around the historic Plaza and surrounding streets, tucked into historic adobe or Victorian buildings emanating originality.  You won’t find standard brand-name stores, or the high-end boutiques of New York showcasing international designers.  Instead, walking through the narrow streets of Santa Fe will bring you face to face with many local boutiques, galleries, food shops, home decor suppliers, and countless other unique retailers offering a variety of treasures for you to explore.  The free-spirited merchants behind these businesses embody the spirit of Santa Fe; a place where passion, inventiveness, and individuality speaks of the cities unbridled creativity.  If you’re looking for the chance to add some iconi turquoise jewelry to your collection, don’t miss The Golden Eye or Ortega’s on the Plaza.  Don”t hesitate to book your room at our luxurious Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast, and let your inner shopper experience our legendary Santa Fe shopping.   

High-end boutiques are only one piece of the Santa Fe shopping puzzle.  Santa Fe also boasts some of the best and oldest art markets in the world.  In the mid 1800’s, the Santa Fe Trail played a central role in the trade of essential and luxury goods brought to the southwest.  Santa Fe continues this trading legacy today, providing shoppers and visitors to Santa Fe  access to Native American artwork, unique handmade items in small boutiques, trading posts and large open air markets.  If you’re on the hunt for the perfect piece of art for your home, or a great gift for someone special, then the Santa Fe Summer Arts Markets are the perfect place for you to visit.  These diverse markets are the perfect shopping location when you stay at our luxurious Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast.
