Great farmers market in Plaza w lots of variety, but not for person on a budget which is typical for many farmers markets. Nice shops on side streets near plaza.

Other reviews are right, it can be very touristy, but it's a nice place to take a walk that's not off the beaten path. If you're just passing through, definitely stop by, if you've got more time to stop and explore you can probably skip, it's pretty similar to most other touristy plazas (Santa Fe, Ruidoso, Las Cruces, etc.)

Many touristy stores and gift shops. The Hotel Fonda is on the plaza, and is supposedly historic, but don't ask to use their rest room if you aren't staying there.

Wonderful farmers market on Saturdays from 8a-noon. Flowers, bread, produce, soaps and essentials oils, music. Lots of fun!

The are is quite touristy and don't be surprised if you don't see too many things that are unique. There are some great gallery stores and a few stores that offer something special, but for the most part it is very touristy. The plaza is nice to walk around.

Not much to see. Shopping underwhelming. One or two good restaurants. Poorly maintained area. Would not go back.

Too touristy with too many kitschy shops. Not worth the time to visit. It could have been so much more.

The Plaza is niot big, but it's a lovely place to sit and people watch and charming to walk through. The Plaza is surrounded by shops which is convenient. We were a bit disappointed that there were no music concerts or vendors there during over visit. Apparently there is music in the Plaza on Thursday evenings. If you're in Taos,... More
