Latin American Marketplace presented by DuPage Hispanic Alliance
Mark your calendars, the DuPage Hispanic Alliance is hosting the Midwest’s largest artisan Latin American Marketplace. Find authentic, unique and rare items from a variety of countries south of the border. Vendors will be selling everything from hand-crafted clothing, artisan jewelry, bi-lingual literature, mouth-watering pastries and so much more.  This is not any artisan market; it is a one-of-a-kind experience that normally requires a passport.
