  • Join us May 21 - July 31 for a taste of local history through the outdoor exhibit along the agricultural fields on the grounds of Gutiérrez Hubbell House History & Cultural Center, a Bernalillo County Open Space located at 6029 Isleta Blvd SW. The exhibit invites visitors to explore the varied origins and paths to New Mexico of key elements in our local foods. We’ll examine Pueblo agricultural trade and innovation, the impact of Spanish colonization on local crops and foods, and the influence of changing technology on what ingredients are available to New Mexicans. The exhibit tells the story of how generations of farmers and cooks adopted, adapted, and embraced foods from around the globe to create the unique and recognizable flavors that New Mexicans treasure as our local culinary traditions. The exhibit is located outdoors along the agricultural fields, with ample spacing. Downloadable and print guides for self-led tours will be available for those who wish to explore the exhibit alone or with a small group. On-site parking is available dawn-to-dusk, 7 days a week.
