    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau Arts and Humanities Council hosted their first of the year summer market.

    Located in the parking lot shared by Centennial Hall and the JAHC, the fresh air market runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday.

    They have another market coming up in July and September.

    In August they will have their big event with food vendors and home goods.

    In the winter they also have several indoor markets.

    Lauralye Miko, the Arts and Programs manager for the JAHC, shared information about their events.

    "One of the programs that we run every year is the fresh air market or any markets. We have a few different markets that go on during the summer. We have the fresh air market, its vendors from all over town, and we sell anything from cottage goods, arts, crafts, beauty, anything you can think of. And it's just a way to bring people and our community together. And we run markets all year long. So today we have 21 vendors, and we can have up to 36, sometimes 40 vendors on these events."

    Miko also said they always look for local artists to perform at the markets.

    Today, The Empty North performs.

    She also had information on how to become involved.

    "If anyone wants to know anything more about these events or get involved, they can email me at laura@jahc.org."
