Acoma Pueblo Shopping: 5 reviews and 6 photos
Though each vendor we passed was greated by name and specialty by our guide, shopping was discouraged during the tour. But, as you pass vendors, you are encouraged to note the section number of the area.
After the guided tour, you may request assistance of a Vendor Guide to take you back to the vendor section / part of the city you wish to revisit. It is at this point you are encouraged to shop to your heart's content.
To be allowed to sell in Acoma, the vendors must be locals, and must be willing to educate visitors on traditional and non-traditional art forms - as well as honestly state which form their own wares represent.
Bargaining is expected by the way ... so have fun!!
What to buy: Acoma pottery is hand-built and traditionally painted. A white background, with thin black lines, and hints of red are hallmark designs found on Acoma art. An additional design commonality is the use of the parrot.
Parrots in Acoma represent the feminine aspect of nature, and the matriarchal society in which the Acoma people live.
What to pay: It depends on what it is ... expect to pay less for non-traditional art forms.
