We shopped around town alot and found that the corner shop in the Old Town Artisans complex is the best place to buy Native Turquoise Jewelry. Not only is the jewelry authentic, it is well priced. We think the quality is very good too. We...More

Having lived in Tucson for a decade and then moving away for many years, we looked forward to the crafts and art at Old Town Artisans. Not sure what happened there but most of the jewelry artists are gone and the space empty. The pottery...More

Nice shops with unique items. My only complaint is I wish they would post their hours on their website. I went today and found one shop open, the rest closed for a 2-week summer vacation, 7/30-812.

Old Town Artisans is so much more than a large collection of shops exhibiting quality local artists' work. It is all of that, but in the large courtyard in back, lies wonderful food and drink, and evening entertainment. La Cocina is the wonderful restaurant with...More

Unfortunately owners have missed a huge opportunity to have something unique in these historic buildings. Folks leaving the Art Museum easily stroll over to the shops expecting authentic items in a welcoming atmosphere. Instead the linked shops are offering "same old stuff" but very overpriced!...More

A sweet collection of artful, creative shops in what they claim is the oldest building that's been continually occupied in AZ. I especially enjoyed Barrio Bella, which has upcycled and new clothing that is unique. Cool jewelry, too. Reasonable prices, yay!!!

We have stopped by the Old Town Artisans each time we are in Tucson. The art is great. The atmosphere is wonderful. The people are very friendly. A cold beverage or bite to eat is delicious. Highly recommend stopping by and browsing a bit.
