Visit the Santa Fe Spanish Market this Summer

Santa Fe Spanish Market

While the Santa Fe Plaza is bustling with shopping opportunities year-round, the Santa Fe Spanish Market is one of a kind for works of art, jewelry, and artisan goods. This year, the Santa Fe Spanish Market 2022 is planned for the last weekend in July, and it’s such a perfect place to support local Santa Fean artists. You’ll also experience live music and delicious regional foods each day.

The Spanish Colonial Arts Society presents the annual event, and it’s one of many unique markets that take place in Santa Fe. The City Different is a melting pot of cultures, which we feel is essential to support and celebrate. On any visit to the Santa Fe Plaza, you’ll get a glimpse into this beautiful desert city’s relaxed vibe and feel. With lovely music drifting through the streets and beautiful aromas wafting through the air.

Thankfully, our Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast is a matter of blocks from the Plaza yet tucked off on a quiet side street. You’ll be right next to all of the popular activities but set back for a restful stay. Our Inn’s six artfully appointed guest rooms are welcoming and tailored for relaxation. Each morning of your visit, you’ll be treated to a delightful breakfast—the best in town.

Visit the Santa Fe Spanish Market this Summer

This year at the Santa Fe Spanish Market will be an extraordinary celebration as it’s the 70th year for the annual festival. There will be more than 100 artists showcasing traditional arts in various categories, including woodcarving, tinwork, hide painting, straw appliqué, furniture, ironwork, and much more.

“Our stay at The Four Kachinas Inn was wonderful. From the cozy, clean, and well-appointed room to the great breakfasts, it was a perfect place to spend our 42nd anniversary. We spent four nights at the Inn and we were treated to a different delicious breakfast each day, which was enhanced by our charming host and the other guests at the Inn. The historical building which is the main house where we stayed was updated so that we had all the creature comforts. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience!” –Laurie C.
