Our Mission

At YMGS, our mission transcends the conventional concept of a marketplace. It's a heartfelt commitment that drives us to make a positive impact on the lives of both artisans and consumers, while building bridges between diverse communities and cultures through the medium of extraordinary art.

Our vision reaches far beyond mere commercial transactions. We aspire to create a legacy, one lovingly handcrafted product at a time. This journey was ignited by a dream - a dream to create a world where artisans thrive and flourish, because we wholeheartedly believe that a world that uplifts its artisans is a better world for everyone.

As we've journeyed forward, we've come to realize a profound truth: artisans possess the remarkable ability to instigate visible and transformative change within the communities they touch. As we connect people worldwide through their exceptional craftsmanship, our aim is to impact the world in a way that not only honors diversity but also uplifts those who create, enriching the lives of those who get to experience the beauty of their artistry.


Our Goals

Join us in our goal as we foster a welcoming environment that encourages cultural appreciation. We're dedicated to providing visitors with a genuine taste of what El Paso has to offer, embodying the very spirit of our city. To realize this vision, we work diligently to offer dependable and seamless tourist services, while also shedding light on the richness of our local culture. Additionally, we proudly champion and spotlight local artists and seek to educate individuals on the profound significance of the Mission, the Tigua Tribe, and their vibrant heritage.

As part of our commitment to enhancing your experience, we are pleased to provide guidance and information about all the fabulous shops, eateries, and museums along the Historic Trail. Your journey doesn't end with us; it's a gateway to the myriad of wonders that the entire trail has to offer. Together, let's embark on this journey of cultural discovery and understanding, exploring not only our gift shop but the tapestry of historical treasures that lie ahead.
