Those at the event say they hope it brings the community together and local artists helped put the event together. “They’ve created these beautiful paintings that have decorated the village area. They’ve come together to contribute items to our gift baskets which are beautiful, and they’re each just putting in their effort to make this something the community wants to do,” said vendor Ashley Ward.

Los Ranchos is hosting another market next Saturday starting at 10:00 a.m.
