Plaza is filled with Tourist traps not much New Mexico art or decent shops, lot of closed places and expensive junk shops.

A nice little Plaza with lots of shops to visit. Great place for 'people watching' and just letting the day go by. Good selection of eating places nearby

There are many shops here with a large variety of items. The store I liked best is Mesa's Edge. It had kachinas, fetishes and beautiful jewelry by local artists.

From kitch to stunning art from local artisans, with a whole lot of history in between, It's all here. I have never personally encountered a less than friendly merchant. My wife wife and love strolling and people watching on the plaza. Allow yourself plenty of time for this must do while visiting Taos

Had dinner at the Gorge Bar and Grill overlooking the plaza at sunset. Very good food and wonderful view of the sunset. The plaza was under renovation, but fun to walk around and window shop.

Many interesting local shops in the plaza - from souveniers to art to authentic Indian goods. A little for everyone.

The plaza was not crowded when we were there and it is a lovely place just to walk around and go in the interesting shops. We all bought something and, at Ammann Gallery I got a pot made by a pueblo Native American with information about him for a reasonable price.

I don't suggest not going but have the right expectations. The shops are very tourist oriented and expensive. If you research here on Trip Advisor you will find better, less expensive places to shop and eat in Taos.

We've been receiving recipes from Jonathan from Made in New Mexico store. This is a great shopping area, but this is the one to visit. Quality, local to New Mexico retail store. You like NM spices, there here. Chilies throughout.
