Spanish Market

The oldest and largest market in the United States for Hispanic artists working in traditional forms and media, the market was first organized in the 1920's by the Spanish Colonial Arts Society. The Society's aim was to preserve and promote the traditional arts in the face of the flood of manufactured goods in the marketplace.
