Read About Us

Taos County Economic Development Corporation

Taos County Economic Development Corporation was founded in 1987, the challenges facing our community were those of a historic, semi-isolated, rural area transitioning from a centuries-old, self-sufficient agrarian base to a commercially focused economy. TCEDC has operated over twenty-nine years utilizing a family model in its community development efforts to address these challenges.

This is such a welcome sight to see, community helping community. Share plots are what’s needed in other areas of the country. Hand up, not out.

Taos Food Center Business Fund

Thanks to our generous donors, we have now reached 25% of our $2,500 goal to establish the Taos Food Center Business Fund! 

TCEDC is fighting to support local and regional entrepreneurial food business get their foot in the door to bring their recipes to the store shelves. But due to the new FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations it now costs more than ever for business to be compliant. This cripples the majority of food vendors and prevents them from making it past the initial testing phase with their product. TCEDC is starting the Taos Food Center Business Fund which will help new vendors be compliant with by FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). With your donation you can make it possible for food vendors sell their healthy, local food in Taos and Northern New Mexico. Donate today.
