International Folk Art Market

The International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe, NM was the most inspirational and enjoyable experience. There were more than 120 select folk artists from over 45 countries at the festival. The art was distinct and expressed the world’s diverse cultures. The sales at the market directly benefit artists and their families and help sustain communities worldwide. The participants take home 90% of all sales.

We took home hearts for Haiti, baskets from Rwanda and bracelets from Peru. This is an art festival that everyone needs to experience.
