Located in the heart of Taos, New Mexico, the John Dunn Shops line a beautiful pedestrian walkway linking Bent Street and the historic Taos Plaza.

20 unique, independently and locally owned shops and eateries offer something for everyone - handmade leather goods, uncommon fabrics, books, kitchen supplies, fossils and minerals, antique maps and manuscripts, New Mexico art & crafts, beautiful comfortable shoes and boots, Mexican folk art, jewelry, fine yarns and fiber crafts, and contemporary and southwestern fashions for men and women. Two galleries feature the arts and crafts of local artisans.

The John Dunn House, on the National Historic Register, was the home of one of Taos' most colorful characters. Click here to read his story. Stroll in John Dunn's garden, visit with locals and shopkeepers, sit by the shaded fountain, listen to local musicians, meet local artists at their easels, sip a cappuccino or fresh fruit smoothie... and in summer, enjoy sweet or savory crepes or Asian noodles from one of our outdoor food carts.

All-day parking directly across Placitas Road welcomes visitors, and the Bent Street Cafe and Deli, Coffee Cats, a bubbling fountain, and beautiful landscaping invite you to enjoy a leisurely day.

Come spend a day in the heart of historic Taos.
