Time to go shopping in Santa Fe. The city  has three major art markets over the summer and many smaller art events. First up: Santa Fe International Folk Art Market which has only been going since 2004.  Despite its short history, it’s wildly successful and attracts artisans and shoppers from around the globe. The market, besides giving attendees an opportunity to experience artisans from all over the world (and their work) makes it possible for those artisans to be able to practice their craft and provide support for their families and communities. The 2012 Market runs from July13th through the 15th. If you love shopping, grazing and people watching, spring for tickets to Friday evening’s preview evening preview event.
