The Sawmill District, an area that's continuing to grow, is getting a new addition. A former lumber warehouse in the district, will soon be home to 24 different local businesses.

"The Sawmill Market will be the heart of the district," said Sawmill Market leasing agent, Cindy Campos.

The space is 34,000 square-feet and will be New Mexico's first food hall. The businesses will offer coffee, baked goods, burgers and waffles, among other items. None of the 24 businesses will sell the same thing.

"We want to create that community where people come and gather and experience different retails and different types of foods," Campos said.

Sawmill Market sits across the street from Hotel Chaco, a high-volume area that Sawmill Market tenants said will be great for business.

"We'll have a much larger access to a customer base, but also, it will just be great for our mission and for our vision to kind of tap into the tourist industry here would be really nice," said Plata Coffee co-founder Rose Kerkmans.

Plata Coffee is currently at 8th Street and Silver Avenue. It's co-owners said they're ready to move into the Sawmill Market.

"It's exciting, for sure. It's a different kind of experience, not only currently running something, but also trying to set up something else," Kerkmans said.

Doors open in February 2020.

Sawmill Market is still accepting applications for tenants. There are four vacancies left. Click here for the leasing packet.
