Santa Fe has gained a lovely new retail and bar experience with the opening of Los Poblanos Farm Shop Norte, a block off the Santa Fe Plaza.

ROOTED IN HISTORY The bar seating at Los Poblanos Farm Shop Norte.

Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm is among the most special spots in New Mexico. The entrance allée of cottonwoods, the backdrop of the Sandias, the gardens surrounding the John Gaw Meem main building — it’s simply magic. Add in peacocks strutting their stuff, the towering vintage silos, and the outstanding Campo restaurant for even more charm. The farm’s lavender fields are legendary, in the summer season, but the whole property stands as a sterling example of historic preservation coupled with an imaginative enterprise. Its Farm Shop has been — for more than a decade — one of my go-to stops for food and well-selected merchandise for the home and table.

The Rembe family, the stewards of the property, have undertaken a couple of recent extensions to Los Poblanos. One is a shop called Town & Ranch located in downtown Albuquerque. The other is the newly opened Farm Shop Norte, at the corner of Washington and Marcy Streets in Santa Fe.

The Santa Fe Farm Shop occupies a 1935 Sinclair station and farm supply store that has been used for many purposes over the years. The renovation is exquisite, sharing the rustically light and airy aesthetic of the original shop in Los Ranchos.

PLANTING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE Bottles of liquor at Los Poblanos

Among the new enterprises of the farm is a new pair of Los Poblanos Botanical Spirits. The farm has used its two decades of experience growing and distilling lavender and other botanicals to create two varieties of gins. One is an aromatic lavender gin. The other combines a blend of piñon, rose, hawthorn, and chamomile. Both express the aroma and flavor of the Rio Grande Valley. The farm shops in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque are designed to highlight the new spirits. Buy the gins retail, or taste them on their own, or in mixed drinks, in the shop’s cozy bar. If gin’s not your game, they have a selection of teas for sipping. Light nibbles are available to accompany your choice of beverages too.

Lavender products at Los PoblanosNorte’s front rooms are devoted to all manner of merchandise connected to the farm, including the full line of their body care and food products. Supplementing their own merchandise are pieces for the table or pantry designed by local artisans and craftspeople, cheeses, and other delectables for a winter picnic.

You can even find Celina’s biscochitos, to save you the effort of Christmas baking. Made in Albuquerque, these are among the best renditions of our state cookie that you can buy commercially. The cookies come in sleeves of a dozen, each thin anise-scented disk showered with cinnamon sugar.

Stop in soon to enjoy a delicious taste of New Mexico.
