“Make time for this!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Had so much fun here, it was an unexpected highlight! Got GREAT deals on some silver bracelets (try here before you buy on the plaza downtown for sure), African beads, a really nice Mexican rug, and a couple paintings. And some really great spices, hand-mixed for us. Be sure to visit painter Kelly Moore's over-the-top shed in the middle of the market, it has to be seen to be believed. And he is a trip.

More of an artisan market than a typical flea, although there were some more flea-type booths too. Friendly vendors who will deal, and an incredible view. And, surprisingly yummy chicken tacos!

“Great options, diverse items”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I was surprised to find this market open on Easter, and only about half of the vendors were open, but they were happy to be there and there was great diversity in the stalls that were open. Jewelry, rugs, chili's, clothes and home goods were easy to browse and enjoy. This is certainly a great place to stop if you are heading north from Santa Fe.

“Decent Flea Market North of Santa Fe”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We've driven by the Tesuque Flea Market numerous times, and it is definitely a busy place when the weather warms up and tourist season is in full bloom during the summer especially. This time of year there are not as many vendors or people, but the vendors were very pleasant and there was a nice selection of goods for purchase. We found prices to be high overall though, with several vendors offering similar goods, but compared to downtown Santa Fe, you can purchase jewelry, arts and clothing for less here at the Flea Market.

There is plenty of parking, but the parking lot is dirty and hot in summer. Dogs are not allowed, and you cannot take any pictures at all on the grounds, so leave your pets and cameras behind. Many vendors take credit cards, but you can still negotiate prices best with cash.

“Small but Great Quality Artists and Vendors”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Many rue the good ol days at this once world renown flea market which boasts one of the great views in the world, but even at this late date in the year ( November) we saw and purchased wonderful things.
Go looking for outsider artist Kelly Moore, landscape artist Jenning or "Skelitina".
A great mix of retail, art and ethnic. We went home with a painting, a hip mod coat and a voodoo doll. Worth the stop!
Definitely not wheelchair friendly and leave the dogs in the car (windows down of course).
