International Folk Art Market | Collection at the Dallas Market Center

The International Folk Art Market | Collection at the Dallas Market Center encourages sustainable and dignified livelihoods by connecting artists with wholesale buyers for year-round income. Over five days, approximately 23 artists receive booth space and hands-on training at the Dallas Market Center, one of the largest home and gift shows in the country, where they connect and establish relationships with wholesale buyers.

Artists learn about wholesale marketing, order fulfillment, and how to strengthen their income and earning opportunities through export. Over seven years, 65 artists have earned more than one million dollars from immediate sales and wholesale orders.
