Local Art

Supporting shops that support local artists is like a two-for-one deal. And who doesn’t like a deal?

Just off the Mesilla Plaza, visit Mesilla Valley Fine Arts Gallery. It’s a cooperative gallery showcasing the work of many local artists, including paintings, sculptures, photography, jewelry, and much more.

Café de Mesilla is full of handmade art, jewelry, and more made by local and indigenous artists that you can peruse while waiting for your cup of joe. The Bean de Mesilla and The Bean at Josefina’s both showcase local artists’ unique work bringing to life an atmosphere of creativity.

While you’re in Mesilla, stop by La Posta de Mesilla. This long-time local favorite is in a historic building and no only offers delicious food and top-notch margaritas, you can shop in the gift shop and take home something special. Be sure to visit with the birds in the lobby aviary!

shop local for Tasty Treats

You can never go wrong with locally made spirits. Dry Point Distillery serves the Mesilla Valley New Mexico-made gin, vodka, whiskey, and bourbon and is dedicated to staying local. If an ingredient can’t be sourced in New Mexico, owner Chris Shaeffer always supports small farmers. Their motto “farm to liver” really rings true. A night of tasting handcrafted cocktails or a bottle for the house are great gift options.

Get a growler at Icebox Brewing or Blue Moon, pop a bow on it, and you have the perfect party-starting gift for any occasion. Of course, many locally owned area restaurants offer gift cards that make a great gift!

Las Cruces is home to many entrepreneurs, many of whom operate small businesses you can support on Small Business Saturday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and all year around. Stop by the Saturday Las Cruces Farmers & Crafts Market on Main Street in the center of Downtown to find a wide variety of locally produced foods, crafts, and art.

From artists and craftspeople to restauranteurs and shop owners, there are lots of ways to shop local and support their efforts. These are just a few of the places you can visit!
