The Sunport is inspiring travelers to buy local.
In partnership with the New Mexico Tourism Department and Stellar, retailers in the Sunport will now feature products made by 10 local artisans.
The kick-off event for the campaign launched Friday with samples, music and more. Local artisans say they’re excited to share their product with people from all around the world.
“It’s an incredible state, absolutely incredible, and I tell everybody I know how great the state is and this is the beginning to get that word out,” artisan Lenny Pelifian said.
Officials hope the three-month long effort will give visitors a true “New Mexico welcome” as soon as they step off the plane.
