Reply to market vendors rudeness:
We are one of many vendors at the Anchorage weekend market who enjoy greeting visitors from all over the world. As we show our wood spirit carvings, we constantly hear how friendly the Alaska people are! The spirit of the market is to have fun and enjoy the many things to do — great food, entertainment and unique shopping opportunities. And, yes, the friendly rivalry with our friends from the next biggest state. We are proud of our market and invite you to come, bring the family and see for yourselves.
