Did you make it to Spanish Market in Santa Fe this past summer? It is a wonderful part of the Southwest tradition of New Mexico and has been going on for many years. Maybe you're a newcomer and didn't know about it. Or, maybe you had other plans and just couldn't squeeze it into your busy schedule. The good news is that you don't have to wait until next summer to enjoy the traditional Spanish colonial arts offered at the annual market in Santa Fe. Perhaps you don't know that there is a Winter Spanish Market right here in Albuquerque. For the first time the Winter Market will take place in Albuquerque rather than Santa Fe. Not without a bit of controversy, the move will allow Albuquerque a wonderful opportunity to enjoy this 25 year old tradition minus the drive north to Santa Fe.
Mark your calendar right now for Friday and Saturday, November 29 & 30, 2013 and plan to spend at least one of those days at the 25th Annual Winter Spanish Market being presented at the Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town.
