It’s only a week until Christmas, and only another day and a half for the Feria Artesanal Navideña 2021, a better-than-average Yucatán crafts market, that runs through 8 p.m. Sunday at Parque Santa Ana.
Casa de las Artesanías was inaugurated Thursday when the governor presided over a ribbon-cutting. The market is focused on Yucatán handicrafts produced by 52 area artisans.
Merchants were eager for the fair to start after being affected badly by the lockdown.
Among the items for sale are traditional huipiles, blouses and suits with beautiful details, made of linen or cotton fabric, some with cross-stitching by hand. These iconic wearables are from Mérida, Muna, Tekax, Hocabá, Teabo, Kantunil, Valladolid, Tixkokob, Izamal and Teya.
Honey products, another item strongly associated with Yucatán, as well as nylon and crochet hammocks, pottery, saddlery, filigree jewelry, palm hats, papier-mâché, and turned and carved wood items are available.
All hygiene measures will be enforced.
