The showroom, located off Jefferson Boulevard in Dallas, also will have a cafe serving wines, beers, and foods with a Latin flair.
On the second Saturdays of each month, guests can attend workshops and hear live performances to become more informed about Latin American traditions.
“Mercado Artesanal is a community place to bring together all cultures,” according to the showroom website.
Its social mission goes beyond education about Latin culture. Mercado Artesanal is also sponsoring a tree reforestation project in Oaxaca, Mexico as well as the construction of a school in remote Peru where local students including homeless youth can learn a trade.
