Supporting small businesses is more critical this year than ever before, as so many local vendors have struggled to survive through the pandemic. Some El Pasoans are opting to shop local this holiday season, seeking out local artisans and specialty small businesses for gifts for loved ones. 

El Paso Matters would love to hear from you about your favorite locally owned businesses in a variety of categories. Please take five minutes to fill out our survey to share your recommendations! We’ll use these recommendations for an upcoming story.
