The Merc in Placitas

The Merc is a local grocery store located in the Homestead Village shopping center in Placitas, NM, just north of Albuquerque.

If you’re meeting us at the Merc in Placitas, stop in next door at Placitas Pizza (https://placitaspizzaco.com) for a Jeep tour special offer! Get free garlic bread with a purchase of $10 or more just by mentioning you’re taking a Jeep tour! Placitas Pizza is open from 11am to 8pm every day but Tuesday. You should also check out these other restaurants in the Homestead Village: Placitas Cafe & Blade’s Bistro. Check their websites for hours.

Look for a New Mexico Jeep Tours Jeep in the parking lot. We’ll meet at the Jeep. And yes, it’s ok to leave your car in the Homestead Village parking lot. People use it all the time as a park and ride.
