We got there late in the day so were unable to visit many of the shops. However, there is an antique shop in the Plaza that is much more interesting than the other shops. It's practically a museum, with medical antiquities and all sorts of interesting things. I can't remember the name of it, unfortunately, but it shouldn't be hard... More

It was a beautiful day for a stroll around the plaza. It's similar to the plaza in Santa Fe with galleries and restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Made in New Mexico store and ended up buying some souvenirs there. A large choice of chiles and salsas, as well as locally made jewelry, candles and art.

Great shopping for souvenirs but the art galleries are just amazing. So much talent and artistry in this area. Some of the best dining is here as well.

This is nice little downtown area similar to Santa Fe. There is good shopping, dining and places to stay.

Lots of small shops, some better than others & a lot of similar items...but if you like southwestern design, art, jewelry, crafts etc...you'll be in heaven. The best was the Farmer's Market in the center of the Plaza. The Food, people watching, locals coming out & mingling with their community...It was wonderful!

Taos Plaza is full of shops selling over-priced stuff you can find most anywhere. Nothing much speaks 'Taos!' here and it's a major disappointment. We enjoyed the Kit Carson Museum and Taos Rocker (a rock & gem shop) ... that was about it.

I loved shopping in Taos and picked up some great Southwestern Clothing for Fall and some jewelry /accessories! There is something for everyone here!

I visited the Taos Plaza on Farmers' Market day, which provided colorful sights and friendly locals. However, the Plaza is surrounded by overpriced gift shops that were not even very inviting. Since I am not a shopper anyway, there was nothing there for me. So glad that I chose to stay in Santa Fe instead.

If you are into the early SW American history, this is a must see. The plaza looks much like it did when the first American's rolled in to sell their good in what was then a land claimed by Mexico.

Nice to walk around, in and out of shops, some great shopping if one is a shopper. Also very nice to just sit and enjoy the outdoors.
