Fortunatel­y, the red-vested staff at both Taos locations will point you in the right direction and offer advice if needed. In 1970, it was opened as a family-owned building material retail store. Río Grande Ace Hardware won first place for Best Lumber/Hardware Store in the inaugural Best of Taos poll 21 years ago and has won many times since. Petree has done it again. Voters chose Petree Nursery and Greenhouse­s as number one in 2020’s Best of Taos survey. Here you get all your perennials and annuals, all grown right here in Taos, plus low-priced soil amendments and other nutrients. Keeping Taos “green” means best prices and selection, keeping money in the community, supporting local jobs and reducing the carbon footprint of hauling goods across state lines. Petree is Northern New Mexico’s largest and oldest nursery.

The Cellar features a huge selection of craft beers, wines and spirits, and a very well-versed staff to help in the decision-making. In just two years of operation, The Cellar has impressed voters, awarding it with first-place honors both years. The goal all along was to offer selections that weren’t in Taos. While some of their line can be found elsewhere in town, most are at The Cellar only.
