The Santa Fe International Folk Art Market is changing lives across the Globe by increasing awareness and appreciation of traditional arts. Since the market began in 2004, Artists have used market profits to dig wells, build schools, and other community improvements; things that were not possible before are now possible. Since the market began in 2004, it has grown to largest of it's kind in the world, and has continued to attract more visitors and increase sales every year. Artists keep 90% of all sales, and artist payout is complete within 24 hours of market closing. The Santa Fe International Folk Art Market and it's partner, The Museum of International Folk Art, provide unparalleled economic opportunities for artists, and a fantastic experience for visitors.
