Summer continues in full swing in The City Different. Here are some upcoming events and local news.
Indian Market, the biggest event in Santa Fe each year, is Saturday, August 20st and Sunday, August 21st at the historic Santa Fe Plaza. It’s been on the annual calendar since 1922. The juried event is the largest, most prestigious show of its kind in the world. Over 1,144 Native artists and artisans exhibit their wares. Additional booths house food, book sales, non-profit organizations and more. If you can’t make it this year, remember, same time next year. The weekend kicks off with a preview on Friday evening at the Santa Fe Convention Center attracts serious collectors, museums, gallery and shop owners and the just plain curious. If you’re in Santa Fe that weekend, check it out or plan a last minute getaway. Remember to make your hotel and restaurant reservations in advance. I’m not kidding when I say it’s busy.
Food and lodging news:
According to El Mitote in The Santa Fe New Mexican, food writers, Jane and Michael Stern included Roque’s Carnitas in a piece they wrote for the August/September issue of Saveur magazine. This venerable food cart, set up seasonally in the historic Plaza, has become a local institution.
