We built Manzanita Market on the Plaza with the idea of offering a space for locals to be a community and for those visiting our town, a selection of goods to take home with them, handmade only by our local people. We have a shared community table that runs through the middle of the dining room, with small tables on the sides. The space is simply decorated with local art, rustic yet elegant chandeliers that are handmade in Taos by Marian Fahrney, and tables and benches made by Balthazar, a local woodworker.
We are a local marketplace with a display of goods created, written, imagined and produced in northern New Mexico. We specialize in local goods & local foods.
We are health food minded market cafe in the sense that our food is sourced from local farmers and ranchers, organic and infused with superfoods. We offer bone broths as a base for our soups that have simmered for 24 hours offering vital nutrients and amino acids. Our menu offers a selection of sandwiches and one-pot meals and local fresh salads. Our menu is fun and reflective of local ingredients and modern cuisine. Our in House Herbalist creates seasonal elixirs, health smoothies, and blended herbal teas. We source organic herbs and teas and superfoods for all of our concoctions. Our baker creates a wholesome gluten and white sugar free pastry counter along with whole food pastries.
Our ice cream is churned at the market in small batches with local eggs, organic milk, raw sugar and local fruits, mints and handmade caramel. Our rotating flavors reflect the seasons of New Mexico. Our ice cream has no artificial flavors, food coloring or strange chemical binders giving it a soft creamy fresh taste that is well, good for you! We make our ice cream from the beginning till the end the old fashioned way with whole foods.
