The weather took a slight turn for the cold (shocking, huh?) this weekend but it didn’t stop many Alaskans from checking out the first weekend of the Anchorage Market and Festival. I took my camera downtown and snagged these shots – next time we’ll stop by the booths a bit more so you can get a closer look at what the vendors are selling.
