La Tienda is a shopping center like no other. It's is where community happens.
La Tienda is a shopping/community center located just outside Santa Fe in Eldorado. The center is about connection, convenience and enrichment. Every business in the center gives back to the community in a meaningful way. We partner with local community non-profits to enrich the community at large. Center sponsored music, art, classes, and community building events work in tandem with locally owned businesses to create a place that is an intrinsic part of community life. Every business in La Tienda is dedicated to giving back. Individually and collectively, we are committed to the community we serve.
We sponsor The La Tienda Exhibit Space, a beautiful 2,000 square foot gallery for local artists who use the space for free and keep 100% of their sales. Shows rotate monthly. In addition, we are home to The Performance Space, a dog park for small dogs, and the Eldorado Farmers Market. We raise thousands of dollars each year in support of our local school, and host regular community events including Motorado, Healen’s Big Hat Beer and Barbecue, and a monthly flea market which occurs on the third Saturday of each month (May – October).
But it’s our businesses that make the center what it is. All locally owned and operated, the businesses exemplify the best in social entrepreneurship. La Tienda is:
