Our Tour Guide, Spur Line Supply Co.'s Tess Coats

Breakfast and Early Exploratory Shopping at Los Poblanos

“Wake up and head to breakfast at Campo at Los Poblanos. I'd order the Avocado Toast and a cup of Villa Myriam delicious coffee.

Afterward, I'd explore the Farm Shop at Los Poblanos and douse myself with all the lavender products that've been made on site. Then, I'd wander around the property for a bit, adoring the Rose Greely Gardens with the peacocks and the three guinea hens following behind.”

Mid-Day Shopping Stops in the North Valley & Old Town

“Then, I would venture on up Rio Grande Blvd, making a pit stop in Dietz Farms to visit at Sarabande Home and Bookworks. Afterwards, I would journey on to the Albuquerque Museum of Art.”

Followed Up by Lunch at The Grove

“Next, it’s up Route 66 to have lunch at The Grove Cafe and Market. I'd order the Chopped Salad and a cold brew.”

Dinner at El Modelo

“Once I'm ready for dinner, I'd head to the South Valley and pick up a combination plate from El Modelo Mexican Foods.”
