About "Made In New Mexico," and Taos, New Mexico

Our store in historic Taos Plaza

Made In New Mexico, "Where Authenticity Matters"

Before we opened, we sold only items made in New Mexico from our famous "Made In New Mexico" store in Taos. When you visit Taos, your trip won't be complete without a visit to the "Official Home of Real New Mexico Products." The Made in New Mexico! store is located in a slightly-haunted adobe building on the historic Taos Plaza. It just wouldn't be right to sell cheaply-made or imported goods from such a historic location, so everything in the store is made exclusively by the artisans, craftspeople, and micro-businesses of New Mexico.

Visit Taos, "The Original Art Town"

If you like art, history, culture, amazing mountain and high-desert scenery, river rafting, skiing and other outdoor activities, consider Taos (rhymes with "house") for your next vacation...there's simply no place like it.

Artists have been moving here, creating here, and selling their works for over 100 years. Art lovers from all over the world come to Taos to buy from our 65+ art galleries. The amazingly varied and colorful sky and our sacred Taos Mountain continue to inspire thousands of artists, photographers and other visitors every year.

Before it was an art town, Taos was the place where American Indians, and later Europeans, came to trade food, furs and other goods. The Taos Pueblo Indians established their impressive pueblo here around 1,000 A.D., and it still stands as one of America's oldest buildings.. Europeans settled in the area in the late 1600s, and the uniquely American trapper, scout, and guide Kit Carson lived here in the 19th century and is buried here.

Taos remains a fascinating blend of three distinct cultures: Anglo, Spanish and Indian. Today, Taos County is home to about 30,000 year-round residents, while the town of Taos itself has a population of about 5,000.
