All about North Valley, New Mexico

Early Spanish colonists settled in Albuquerque’s North Valley beginning in the 1750s. They gathered in the area because of the rich, fertile farmland that surrounds the Rio Grande. The North Valley actually lies in the floodplain of the Rio Grande, which is known to flood and displace settlements from time to time. But flooding didn’t break the spirits of these settlers. They diligently dug irrigation ditches to bring water into the orchards, crops, and vineyards and tame the arid lands. 

Today, North Valley retains much of its rural character. Winding streets lead past the old farmhouses of yesterday. This lush green area has many bed and breakfasts with stunning views of the Sandia Mountains. North Valley is a quiet and perfect place where one can immerse themselves in tranquility and nature. 

Truly an artist’s delight, North Valley has many art galleries and yearly crafts shows. It is also home to the oldest wine-producing area in all of North America. The weekly farmer’s markets are top-rated, selling fresh, seasonal produce, baked goods, preserves, and artsy crafts.
