Yonemoto’s Nursery and Farm Market

Yonemoto’s Nursery and Farm Market on 4th NW, just north of El Pueblo. Removed to make way for Paseo Del Norte’s 6 lane highway to the West Side. Seen at ABQ Museum 2019 exhibit Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience explores the legacy of Albuquerque’s Japanese American community and the impact World War II-era incarceration camps had on these New Mexicans.

In the late 60s and early 70s, Yonemoto’s was this cool place on 4th Street in the North Valley. An eclectic place, with a combination hardware store, garden center/greenhouse family owned business. They also had really interesting and fun Japanese toys, and a Koi fish pond that everyone tossed coins into and made wishes. Also right beside it was a cute little Japanese grocery store.
