Individual artisans reported that sales from the market greatly exceeded their expectations all three days of the event. The artisan’s combined merchandise sales of the market exceeded $700,000.


One of the best shows I’ve been to in a long time. Exhibitors were carefully chosen. Having exhibited at shows in New Mexico for almost 20 years, I always know about 90% of exhibitors. I am happy to say that I knew about 3% of exhibitors at this show. Well done!
