Looking for a socially conscious alternative to Black Friday?
Join the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center in celebrating 28 years of community building and combating U.S. consumer culture! This year the market will be held on Friday, November 24 and Saturday, November 25, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Due to popular demand we have kept the 3rd day — Sunday November 26 from Noon to 6 PM. Our space is at 922 San Pedro Ave., San Antonio, Texas,
As one of the oldest annual open-air international market offering authentic handmade goods the Mercado de Paz offers a community-centered alternative shopping destination during the busiest corporate shopping days of the year. Especially, in this current political climate, it is becoming more necessary for community to come together in peace and justice! Peace Market provides such a space.
Over 100 international and local artists/artisans will offer visitors a variety of artful, beautifully handmade items including rugs, pottery, textiles, hand-embroidered clothing, paintings, sculptures y más, filling the two-story building, the back patio and spilling out into the street.
Admission is free! The market will also offer live music from local performers and affordable and delicious food options for the weary shopper from tamales to vegan menudo.
The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is located 1.5 miles north of the downtown library on San Pedro and Evergreen St. across from the VIA offices. Parking will be at the San Antonio College parking lot and there will be go-carts to drive you from the parking lot to the Mercado.
