Rethink Your Black Friday Plans with the 28th Annual International Peace Market

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center celebrates 28 years of combining the arts with economic sustainability, international exchange, and social consciousness. Peace Market provides a family-friendly safe environment that honors the importance of moments and spaces where people gather outdoors and indoors together as community. This year the market will be held on Friday, November 24, Saturday, November 25 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, November 26, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

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. It is necessary for the community to come together in peace and justice, and Peace Market provides such a space.

Over 100 international and local artists/artisans will offer visitors a variety of artful and beautifully handmade items including rugs, pottery, textiles, hand-embroidered clothing, paintings, sculptures, and much more. 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.

For the past 28 years, visitors and local patrons have gathered at the Esperanza Center free of charge, filling the two-story building, the back patio and spilling out into the adjacent street. 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.

We know you love your home at City-Base Vista Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, but it’s important to stay active and involved in your community. Attending this event is the perfect chance for you to journey outside your comfort zone to meet new people and seek new opportunities.
