Over the past 13 years, the organization you have known as the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market has been providing opportunity to folk artists at the world’s largest market of its kind. Our organization has expanded programs to meet the specific challenges that folk artists are facing in the global marketplace. What was born out of Santa Fe as a small grass roots organization focused on one ...weekend a year, has now grown into a nonprofit empowering international folk artists year-round, as such we have a new name which reflects our expanded work, the International Folk Art Alliance (IFAA). The International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe (IFAM | Santa Fe) will always be our flagship program.
