The historic Santa Ysabel Store, an iconic landmark in an area rich in history. Dating from 1884, the store has been restored into an updated version of the traditional central source of food and essential items for farmers, families, and travelers. Instead of huge burlap sacks of flour, corn, and grain heaped on the floor, shoppers now find attractive, pantry-sized packages from heritage and organic food producers. Instead of agricultural tools and supplies, there are heirloom seeds and bulbs, do-it-yourself cheese or craft beer making kits, and specialty honey, pickled vegetables and preserves put up in micro batches by food artisans.

The surrounding area maintains its appeal to locals and travellers alike.
