One art studio owner says that keeping money local is the best way to support the arts in the area. “Shopping locally just really puts money in the hands of local Albuquerque artisans, and then Albuquerque artisans put it back into the hands of other artisans or restaurants, so it just helps build our local economy,” she said.

This is the seventh year the balloon museum has held its holiday market.
