 An Albuquerque Urban Market Experience

Sawmill Market is an exciting new development in Old Town Albuquerque. Following in the style of Napa’s Oxbow Market, San Francisco’s Ferry Market, and the Boston City Market, this new marketplace will feature New Mexico culinary experiences, farmers, food artisans, craftsmen, and artists.  This historic lumberyard building is undergoing a dramatic transformation into a new 34,000-square-foot artisanal food hall, housing 24 individual local merchants, a brew pub, a wine bar, restaurant and a mercantile.  At the center is THE YARD, an outdoor dine + play space.

An industrial-yet-modern design will incorporate regional design elements with a nod towards conveying the sawmill roots of the area. Floor-to-ceiling steel frame windows highlight an open and airy space filled with natural light. Garage doors leading to patios and plentiful outdoor space set the atmosphere for enjoying pristine New Mexico weather in the warmer months. Piñon wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits create a warm and comforting ambiance in the cooler months.

The Sawmill Market brings a new dining experience to Albuquerque that will celebrate culinary traditions and emerging trends.  This building that was once home to over 800 sawmill employees will now serve as a community gathering hall for Albuquerque showcasing the beauty of New Mexico through food, diversity, and art.
