No doubt you've noticed the particularly cold, wet, dreary summer we've been having. Recognizing too, that starting a farmers market tradition takes time to catch hold, we have a question for you:
Should we open up the market to produce from other communities around Alaska?
Post your response here!
Either way, the Farmers Market is shaping up to be a great event, so don't miss it! Remember to save Saturday August 30th.
Offerings will include:
Individuals selling locally grown and harvested foods and products
Local Businesses showcasing their locally produced foods and garden products
Non-Profits Organizations offering garden products and baked goods with local fruits
Informational tables on gardening and harvesting resources
Presentations and Demonstrations!
