The 2018 Public Market… we hosted over 200 vendors from 27 communities, representing 20 Alaska cities and seven cities in the Lower 48. Judging from customer comments, the quality of products was better than ever. Vendors reported strong sales at all three venues.
ONLY AT THE PUBLIC MARKET… Items for sale typically include a wide variety of jewelry and Alaska Native arts; custom made garments, decorations, and utensils such as knives and ulus; outdoor gear; gift-quality foods — wild berry products, raw honey, smoked salmon, herbal teas, and salad dressings; holiday gift packages, a selection of toys, classic Alaska photography and recently published books. Our motto is “Only at the Public Market,” since most of our crafters and artists present their products in Juneau only at this show.
A well-served food court provides the weary shopper (or their standby assistants) a place to sit to enjoy an entreé, dessert, and beverages. We also have an espresso bar.
OUR HISTORY… The first Alaska-Juneau Public Market was among the initial events to be staged at Juneau’s brand new Centennial Hall and Convention Center, which opened in mid-1983.
The “Public Market” at Centennial Hall soon became a well-established holiday season tradition for the people of Juneau and the surrounding region. In 1990, the Public Market expanded from the Sheffield Ballroom to the entire facility, and in 2005 we opened the Public Market Annex at the ANB Hall on Willoughby Ave. In 2007, we moved the Annex to the newly renovated facility now known as the Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC), which is immediately adjacent to Centennial Hall. And, in 2018, we expanded once again, this time to the Public Market Annex II at the newly renovated Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall (the former ANB Hall).
