The Bear Town Market opens up only on days when a cruise ship anchors in Kodiak. With Holland America’s Zaandam cruise ship in Kodiak yesterday, more than half a dozen vendors set up shop in the Sun’aq Bingo Hall so that visitors can easily find some of the island’s finest locally produced goods. The ship had1400 passengers and 600 crew aboard. KMXT’s Jennifer Canfield visited with a few vendors and asked them how business was going.
