Holiday Arts & Crafts Markets in Santa Fe

Last updated November 28, 2022

It’s the time of the year when we’re all trying to find the perfect holiday gift for each member of the family, a friend, a white elephant, for your boss… It’s a hard thing to do, and if you’re like us it’s a stressful time to find that special something for the one who has it all (ummm dad?). Luckily, Santa Fe is a pretty good place when it comes to arts and crafts – with it being the 3rd art market in the U.S. and all, we should be able to find a gift or two, right!?? right?

Well, to make things easy for you and I, the ArtWalk Santa Fe team decided to put this little blog together with a list of the Santa Fe holiday markets coming up… and if you happen to find that special gift, make sure to share it with us in the comments section or tag us in Instagram @artwalksantafe.com! Maybe it’ll inspire us or someone else out there…
