From hand made jewelry to pottery to knitted caps and seafood sales, the Juneau Public Market has been a favorite one-stop holiday shopping experience, that is, until the pandemic came along and forced it to go virtual.
But this Thanksgiving weekend, the market returns as an in-person event.
On this Friday’s Juneau Afternoon, a look at some of the changes that’s made this possible.
Also on this program:
- Vincent De Paul Thanksgiving baskets
- Native American Heritage Month at the Juneau Public Library
- The Holiday Soccer Cup Tournament
- And Poetry in the time of COVID, from the Burn Thompson Writers Group
