This year we didn’t make it to any of the European Christmas Markets, but Sitka has a fine Artisans’ Market in Allen Hall on the Sitka Fine Arts Campus. Sponsored by the Greater Sitka Arts Council it is a great opportunity to buy gifts while supporting local artists. They sell wine but what the Sitka market really needs is Gluwein, the mulled wine sold at every European Christmas Market I’ve attended. It helps you get that warm holiday glow. But the market itself does pretty good job of that.
