For those with the fever for a flea, this market—a very popular Santa Fe destination located next to the illustrious Santa Fe Opera—teeters more toward a sophisticated side of the flea market. The market features an array of artists and artisans, purveyors and more. Shop custom boots, Mexican crafts, imported rugs, beads, collectibles from Africa and more.
Santa Fe Lavender’s products of soaps, lotions and essential oils, are seriously finer than anything you will find at an upscale boutique. See them at their website.
Himalayan Handicrafts features statues of spiritual deities, fine silk clothing and prayer rugs. Chef Abdul Wasabi, purveyor of fine spices, offer cooking demonstrations and is quick to talk about the new book he’s working on. Visit his website.
To help fuel your shopping, food vendors offer fajitas, “Rez Dogs”–famous Nathan’s Hot Dog wrapped in fry bread–and more.
Like Beyonce, Samuel L. Jackson and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg (seriously!) before you, experience the other-worldly edge of Santa Fe at the Tesuque Flea Market, 15 Flea Market Road, next to the Santa Fe Opera. Open Friday through Sunday, 9am to 4pm, March – December. Visit the website or call 505-670-2599.
