Santa Fe’s annual Spanish Market pays tribute to traditional Spanish Colonial arts and culture, with several hundred artists selling santos and bultos (wooden carved and painted images of saints), handmade furniture, colcha (straw ornaments), jewelry, weavings and more. Held on the Santa Fe Plaza, the market includes food, live music and dance performances, book signings and more.
A contemporary market takes place at the same time, with artists offering their modern takes on traditional Spanish Colonial art. For more info, visit the Spanish Market website.
The Spanish Market also holds a Winter Marke at the Santa Fe Convention Center featuring more than 80 artists. This is a great place to find unique holiday presents.
