Verdes Cannabis, formerly known as Verdes Foundation, will open its second Santa Fe cannabis dispensary Nov. 23 in the same building as Café Grazie at Plaza Santa Fe, 3530 Zafarano Drive, Unit C.

Verdes, a top five marijuana seller in New Mexico, opened its first Santa Fe store in February downtown on Shelby Street, and for a few weeks Santa Fe will be the only city with two Verdes Cannabis shops. Verdes, one of the oldest cannabis retailers in New Mexico since 2010, has other shops in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, with a second Albuquerque store opening in December.

“Shelby was meant to introduce tourists to cannabis,” said Celeste Melchor, Verdes’ marketing manager. “Sixty percent of Shelby customers are from out of state. The reason we wanted a second store in Santa Fe was to serve locals.”
