No más encanto!!

The Indian Market is cool as always!!
But this is not about the Indian Market, it's about the city itself.
I lived in this region in the late 70's then in the mid 90's till present day.
And what i have found is that Northern New Mexico in general has been infiltrated by some self absorbed outsiders that have no clue on the culture other than how they interpret it as such.
What was local charm is now the west coast charm of interpretation..
No more does the plaza in Santa Fe have a spirit to it of the old local ways!!
Nor does the so called atrocious New York designed Rail yard, that looks like some bad Disney World something ( can't figure out what they were thinking) doesn't fit in with the centuries old Spanish South West ambiance..
Never the less Santa Fe has overgrown with self centered outsiders that don't know how to let what was, the charm of Santa Fe alone.
It's a shell of what it once was and has seriously turned filthy and shabby looking with some of the rudest people I've ever met since coming back. SAD, SAD and SAD!!

So many wonderful things to see and experience! I Hope to make it back next year. Exquisite silver jewelry, a plethora of booths and shops -so wear your walking shoes, good cuisine and excellent margaritas ! I would recommend flying into Albuquerque and driving down.

Fun Day of Shopping and Explorong
Sep 2019 • Friends
We really enjoyed attending this year’s Labor Day festival. There were just enough tents with a wide variety of vendors included. It wasn’t a crazy, claustrophobia-inducing crowd but it was busy enough to give the feeling of community and celebration.

This year was hot but you can always duck into one of the stores or galleries in the area and explore. Everyone is always so nice and willing to share about life in Santa Fe, what they are selling, and in many cases, the rich history associated with the items.

I loved seeing all of the extremely well-behaved dogs (even though dogs are not allowed).

World Class Event
Aug 2019
We attended the 2019 Santa Fe Indian Art Market and I have to say it was a "World Class Event." The Market is held each summer (August) in the Santa Fe Plaza and celebrates many, many of the best Native American artists. Set up on the Santa Fe Plaza under some temporary tents, the opportunity to wander and explore all of the beautiful offerings of the artists is unmatched. The Santa Fe Plaza always offers the galleries and other attractions that are first rate. The permanent galleries are worth the day or two it takes to explore them. But, save your time during the Market to explore all the creative and beautiful work the artists have on display. You will be overwhelmed by the offerings--stunning.

Visit Santa Fe each year decided to visit during Indian Market. Not much fun, masses of people. Have purchased many silver pieces in the past from the Native American people who have license to sell at the plaza year round
They were moved out and visiting sellers were in their normal place. Everything outrageously over priced. Rings that we normally paid $150 to $ 200.00 were now $ 350.00 from visiting sellers. Went back Monday when visiting sellers were gone and purchased another ring for $150.00. What a day makes!

Indian Market 2019 Santa Fe
Aug 2019 • Couples
Crowded. Few places to park. Hot. No places to sit and limited food/drink vendors. Long lines for all restaurants, restroom, parking in or around plaza. You really need to stick close to Plaza for authentic merchants. Few blocks away, many people trying to sale unauthentic art to tourists. I suggest riding the train, if out of town. Drive to Maria’s to eat. The Shed, or any other popular tourist area is a long wait. Bring water, patience and good walking shoes!

The largest number of Artist/Vendors we have ever seen in one event. So much to look at it is hard to see it all during the 2 day event.

Do You Know This? There is a WINTER INDIAN MARKET Every December As Well as the better known Summer Market. Fabulous!
Dec 2018 • Couples
The Winter Indian Market is also an annual event...not held outdoors or quite as big but it is also a juried show held inside the La Fonda Hotel’s 3 stories of halls and conference rooms. It is an absolute highlight of Santa Fe’s Holiday Season. Last year it was held the second full weekend of December. This year, its held the 14th, 15th & 16th of December. There is an entrance fee.

This is an all-juried Native American art market having all kinds of excellent art genres...painting, jewelry, drums, pottery...etc. This way you can buy directly from the artists and the $$ goes directly to them. Its an incredible show where you also get to talk to the artists. We look forward to attending this before we even think of shopping some of the 3rd party shops around town. There will be no look-alike products sourced from other countries here.

Beautiful place

Great place to stroll along, and look at the art work. Parking is a problem, especially for the handicapped
