What Covid-19 precautions will you be taking?
We will be taking all state mandated Covid-19 precautions. The Govenor has projected that New Mexico will be mandate free by June. However, if this is the case come Market time we do encourage all artists and visitors to take any precautions that you feel comfortable with.
How should I prepare for the 2021 Traditional Spanish Market?
We at the Spanish Colonial Arts Society realize that our 2021 Traditional Spanish Market will look and function differently despite whatever mandates will or will not be in place once market is taking place. We have compiled a list of some afforable Covid safe items for our artists to consider purchasing and implementing in your own booth. We want to encourage all artists to do what makes you feel most comfortable. We want to encourage all artists and visitors to engage with each other’s safety and comfort in mind.
Please remember that at our elevation of 7,000’, you will want to drink plenty of water, wear layered clothing for our changing weather, and take time in your shopping to enjoy our surrounding food vendors and restaurants – we want you to fully experience our Market and community.
