Traditional Spanish Market offers both a feast for the senses and an opportunity to learn about New Mexico’s rich Hispanic traditions.
“We are one of three heritage events in Santa Fe, and what we try to do that weekend is truly capture the culture,” Spanish Market Director Maggie Magalnick said. “We do it through the art, which is primo for the weekend. But also we provide an extensive two-day concert on the bandstand that includes music and dance. Our food court has some wonderful Hispanic fare. There’s traditional dress for the weekend, which makes it extremely festive. And that is all coupled with the location within the historic Santa Fe Plaza, surrounded by our traditional architecture. This is a perfect way for the Spanish Colonial Arts Society to promote, educate and preserve the rich cultural identity of the region and to fulfill that part of our mission.”
