Albuquerque’s SAWMILL MARKET is the go-to place for lovers of regional food and history.
Housed in the renovated historic Paxton Lumber Co. building, Sawmill Market is New Mexico’s largest urban food hall with 17 food merchants and an outdoor dining/play space. Drawing on Southwest Native-American, Mexican, Spanish and Western culture and historical influences, it provides memorable food and cultural experiences. It’s a big draw that’s helping restore the vibrancy for which the area was known a century ago.
"Sawmill Market is a friendly neighborhood hub where locals and visitors are always welcome."Molly Ryckman, Sawmill Market VP of Sales and Marketing
