Over the years, we have purchased many genuine Indian produced jewelry and pottery items at the Palace. We have never been disappointed. The artists are on a lottery system, giving more to choose from.
You can’t miss the Palace of the Governors as it’s on the Plaza. To get a sense of the history of Santa Fe you must visit it. Santa Fe was Iin existence 10- 12 years ( depending upon which historian you believe) before the he...More
If you travel for knowledge, and value learning about other cultures, then extending your experience by acquiring something locally made - then this Native Peoples Outdoor market is for you. Plan to take your time, and ask the artists about the work. Many encourage you...More
This is the center of sante fe...I love the Native American vendors that are frequently outside the doors. The exhibits inside are a bit sparse but worth admission. Provides a slice of life many Americans are not familiar with.
If you want to make sure you are getting authentic Native American jewelry while you are in Santa Fe, what better way to do it than to purchase it from the artisans themselves outside the historic Palace of the Governors? The beautiful jewelry and a...More
This historic place is now a place for native people selling their wRes but more important is it’s history. A wonderful collection of relaxing Giordano icons and tools. Plus art are here. Centered next to the plaza it is easy to find
Most people just shop for beautiful jewelry from Native American vendors outside the palace but the inside has some interesting things. I liked the timeline. Less involving than the history of New Mexico museum which is on the same entrance ticket.
My wife and I were walking downtown and saw where Native Americans were selling their wares next to the Palace of the Governors. Apparently, a friend of Georgia O'Keeffe started this to help out the Naive Americans that lived in the area. Good place to...More

Palace of the Governors is a great place to buy Native American art & jewelry from the craftsmen. Outside the Palace, Native American artisans set up blankets on the ground & sell handmade silver jewelry, pottery & artwork at very reasonable prices. The SF Plaza...More

Bargaining is a bit of a lost art.
Negotiating a price that you are willing to pay and one that the seller is willing to accept needs to be done respectfully. The potential buy never knows for sure what price the seller might be willing to accept. Many of the sellers are the artisans that made the items and what they are willing to sell it for may vary with the day of the week and even the time of day.
It all depends on the sellers desire to sell the the the price the buyer's willing to pay...

Hi Gigi. Every time we've visited, the vendors have been there. Most start packing up in the afternoon around 4:30, a few stay until their ride picks them up. One of the vendors told me there is a bus most of them ride, that's why they pack up early. Have no idea when they open shop but if you contact the Santa Fe Visitor's Office (check online for their number) they could probably give you the details you're looking for. I believe the Visitor's Office is closed on Sundays though.
