Anchorage Farmers Market Guide
Anchorage farmers markets have Alaska’s bounty from mid-May through September. Pick up fresh veggies, Alaska seafood straight from the docks, inventive local arts and crafts, and a bite from a food truck all in one stop. There are more than half a dozen farmers markets to choose from in Anchorage.
Anchorage Market and Festival
The Anchorage Market and Festival is a prime stop if you’re after crafts or souvenirs. The market is the largest open-air market in the state. It is a showcase for local artisans, and you’ll find the produce of the season as well.
It also has the biggest array of food trucks and stands. Anchorage classics like reindeer sausage and salmon quesadillas are a must. You’ll likely find fair standards like roasted corn and funnel cakes, but also Filipino food, Russian piroshky, and plenty of other sweet or savory surprises too. Starting summer of 2022, the Anchorage Market will have carnival rides too!
