“Come visit the John Dunn Shops in the heart of Taos’ historic district.

Twenty locally-owned shops and eateries are set along a beautiful pedestrian walkway with a cooling fountain, flower gardens, and towering shade trees. The shops feature locally-made crafts, clothing, yarn, leatherwear, jewelry, fabric goods, and books by Taos authors. In summer months John Dunn walkway is alive with music and food carts.

Dining options are the Bent Street Cafe & Deli, Coffee Cats, Marshall’s Great Noodles and the Hot Dog cart.

John Dunn Shops are located between Taos Plaza and Bent Street. All-day free parking is available directly across Camino de las Placitas from the metered John Dunn lot.
