When Spanish Market fills the Santa Fe Plaza on July 27 and 28, 2013, it’s a feast for the senses, with music and dance sharing the stage with traditional and contemporary art forms. Contemporary Hispanic Market, now in its 27th year, shows the work of 135 artists along Lincoln Ave., adjacent to the Plaza hosting the traditional Spanish market.
