Nearly 200 artists are in New Mexico this weekend to offer their wares for sale at the 13th annual International Folk Art Market. Visitors took home an array of handmade items, including ceramics, jewelry, baskets, carvings and textiles.

The market continues from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today on Museum Hill. Admission is $15 for adults, and free for children 16 and under.

Artists take home 90 percent of the profits, often returning home with funds needed to build homes, schools and wells. Since its founding, the market has generated more than $23 million in sales.
