32nd International Peace Market “Mercadito”

Friday, November 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - Saturday, November 27, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center celebrates 32 years of combining the arts with economic sustainability, international exchange, and social consciousness. Peace Market provides a family-friendly safe environment that honors the importance of moments and spaces where people gather together as community.

This year the market will be held outdoors on Friday & Saturday, November 26 – 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center at 922 San Pedro Ave., San Antonio, TX 78212.

Celebrating the tradition of open air markets, Esperanza’s annual Peace Market has brought people together for over 30 years as comunidad, not consumers. The Mercadito provides an alternative to Black Friday by hosting local artisans and merchants, offering shoppers handcrafted gifts centered around themes of peace, social justice and cultural and environmental preservation.

In past years, our visiting vendors have elevated our Mercado to international status. This year we will miss our international vendors but many of their products will be available in Esperanza’s International Tiendita. The Tiendita and MujerArtes Cooperativa de Esperanza will be spread out on the first floor of the Esperanza building.

Parking will be available at the nearby San Antonio College (SAC) parking lots. Shuttle service will also be provided.

In an effort to promote maximum safety for our staff, Buena Gente, and customers, we are encouraging guests to wear face coverings and to social distance. Thank you!

For more info, you can call us at (210) 228-0201 or email us at peacemarket@esperanzacenter.org.
