The San Felipe Santero Market at Old Town, Albuquerque has been in existence for 18 years. This free outdoor market is held the first weekend in October during the International Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and attracts thousands of visitors in Old Town. This year the market will be held October 1-2, 2022. Santeros are artisans who specialize in creating devotional art in the Spanish Colonial style. Some examples of Santero art are retablos (paintings), bultos (wood carvings), tin work, colcha embroidery (NM folk embroidery), straw applique, and filigree jewelry.
