A juried arts and crafts fair each Saturday and Sunday, May 7 - October 16, set among the trees on 2 lovely acres . Stroll the shady booths and visit with the artists, or sip an espresso and relax while you listen to the live musical performances. Just 7 miles east of Albuquerque, your first stop on the Turquoise Trail. Stop on your way to Madrid or Santa Fe. Beside Just Imagine Gallery & Coffee House, west of the Western Store, artists may apply on line.

It was very limited in the kind and quality of items to buy. It has gotten larger over the years, but still not real quality. When you drive by it invites you in just because it's a small town and you are looking for things to check out! Three times we stopped and never found anything worth getting. Good place... More

We have enjoyed this market on many occasions.We have purchased items in the store,supported vendors,tipped the bands and purchased CDs from the musicians. However today,I was reprimanded by one of the owners in front of other customers, for having brought a diet pepsi on site. The owner scolded me saying that they cannot pay for the music or make money... More

This is a beautiful venue to shop for unique and everchanging art. Hang out with a coffee and listen to fabulous and diverse music. It's always cool in the mountains and a respite fro Albuquerque's summer heat. I buy all my gifts here and avoid the malls while finding new and different item to please the receivers!

Feel like exploring but don't want to head to far out of town? Just 7 miles east of Albuquerque in the Village of Tijeras, there is a must see venue!

They have different music and performances every weekend. Every artist does beautiful, original work. There's a wonderful coffee shop with snacks and a shady portal to relax under and enjoy the show. Bring a picnic, or come out to walk around and shop for art, jewelry, clothes, and crafts. There are lots of plants and tall shade trees, everyone is... More
