Celebrates the humanity of the handmade that empowers communities through monumental earnings.
Since 2004, the International Folk Art Market Santa Fe has hosted more than 750 master folk artists from 91 countries in the world’s largest exhibition and sale of works by master folk artists. Artist sales have exceeded $20 million and impacted over one million lives in the communities they represent. Artwork is consigned to IFAM. The International Folk Art Market handles all sales at the Market event. The Market offers folk artists a respected spot in the global marketplace to gather together and share their handmade traditions and to create economic, social, and individual empowerment.
