Best Grower’s Market

Downtown Grower’s Market

Birds are chirping, unnecessarily strong winds are blowing, and nature is flourishing. And do you know why? That's right! You guessed it! Spring is in the air! And when spring is in the air, Burqueño's know that the Downtown Grower's Market is the best place to spend your days outdoors in search of the best produce from the finest New Mexican growers.

Everyone aims to eat the healthiest food that they can but it's a lot harder than people think. You're constantly asking yourself “Where should I shop?” and that's where La Montañita has the stomachs of Burqueño's in the palm of their hands with their local, fresh and organic produce. We know, we’re drooling too.

With their lavender fields and cute formal gardens you'll never want to leave.

2) Animal Humane of N.M.

3) Barrett House

Best LGBT Leader

Adrien Lawyer

When people think of LGBT, it’s often forgotten what the T stands for.

Best Burlesque Troupe

Burlesque Noir

Burlesque isn’t just a striptease show that makes you turn to putty and melt right out of your seat as beautiful girls wearing almost-nothing-outfits prance around the stage in dramatic, yet humorous, acts. Burlesque is also a creative and intense workout; there is choreography that has been recognized as a true theatrical art in Albuquerque–Burlesque Noir’s choreography to be exact.

2) Sugar Babies

3) Paris-A-GoGo/The Dolls

Best Burlesque Performer

Holly Rebelle

Without the creative genius of Holly Rebelle, Albuquerque would have never experienced its best burlesque troupe, Burlesque Noir.
