El Paso ranks one of the worst places for ‘hipsters,’ despite hidden gems


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Craving culture? A recent survey ranked El Paso as one of the worst cities in the country for hipsters.

Lawnstarter, an online company that connects homeowners with lawn services, compared 150 of the largest cities in the U.S. and the Borderland — sadly — received some of the lowest marks when it comes to offering access to thrift stores, farmers markets, record stores and more.

Despite the uncool implication, El Paso is home to cultural gems that underscore the unique identity of the Sun City. KTSM 9 News compiled a list:

Thrift stores

Farmers markets

Record stores
