Friday, November 12th: Juneau Public Market returns to in-person shopping. St. Vincent De Paul Thanksgiving baskets. Juneau Public Library celebrates Native Heritage Month. Holiday Cup Soccer Tournament. Pandemic poetry from the Burn Thompson Writer’s Group.

More than 125 vendors are expected this year at the 39th annual Juneau Public Market, a three-day event at Centennial Hall, that stars on Friday, November 26.

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
