28th Annual Peace Market/Mercado de Paz – 2017

Bringing people together in the tradition of open-air markets in indigenous communities around the world, the International Peace Market (Mercado de Paz) offers an alternative to holiday retail shopping by giving community direct access to global and local artisans selling one-of-a-kind handmade goods.

As one of the oldest annual open-air, arts and craft international markets, the Mercado de Paz offers a community-centered alternative shopping destination during the busiest corporate shopping days of the year. Over 100 international and local artists/artisans will offer visitors a variety of artful, beautifully handmade items including rugs, pottery, textiles, hand-embroidered clothing, paintings, sculptures y más, filling the Esperanza’s two-story building, the back patio and spilling out into the street.

For more information, check out the calendar event page or keep an eye on our Facebook page for more updates! Check out a promo video for last year’s Peace Market on Youtube!

Remember, if accepted, the market is a 3-day commitment. LOOK BELOW FOR APPLICATION AND GUIDELINES.
