Taos Food Center

Food is at the heart of the cultures and people of Northern New Mexico. The Taos Food Center is truly at the heart of TCEDC’s activities in supporting the people, cultures, and food of Northern New Mexico. The Taos Food Center is a 5,000 square foot commercial kitchen that has the equipment, services, and support that you need to get your food business started! Over 40 local food businesses currently work out of the Taos Food Center, making everything from fresh traditional salsas to delicious organic scones.

Keep an eye out for our “Oso Good Foods” logo on local Taos products! The “Oso Good” phrase was chosen to reflect the delicious and all-natural nature of Northern New Mexico Foods and “Oso” (Spanish for bear) for the bears that roam the mountains around Taos.
