International Folk Art Market: Collection

  • Dallas Market Center Dallas, TX USA (map)

The International Folk Art Market Collection at the Dallas Market Center connects artisans with wholesale buyers over 5 days. During the market, approximately 25 artisans receive booth space and hands-on training at the Dallas Market Center, one of the largest home and gift shows in the country.

Artisans learn about wholesale marketing, order fulfillment, and how to strengthen their income and earning opportunities through export. The 2016 market takes place June 22-26, 2016 at the Dallas Market Center. To apply, artists must have participated in at least one IFAM in Santa Fe, demonstrate export capability, and have the ability to take and fulfill orders for immediate sales.

If you are interested in participating or attending, please contact Sandy Peinado, Director of Artist Development & Social Impact:
