First Review by Sarah P

The best market on the Peninsula - Edit

The Homer Farmer's Market is the local and tourist go-to event on Saturdays during the summer. It can be overcrowded and produce may sell out early toward the beginning of the season. Between Saturdays and the smaller Wednesday market at the same location I complete most of my food shopping during the season. Simply Fresh Salsa made in Homer is the best I've ever had, and twice a week during the summer we had incredible vegan cinnamon rolls and sundried tomato breadsticks from a Russian baker. The vegan baking vendor also sold breads, cookies, cupcakes, vegan Kimchi (other vendors use shrimp and fish sauce), as well as the best sauerkraut and fermented pickles I've found in the area. During the growing season there is a wide variety of produce- greens, mushrooms, onions, garlic, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, celery, herbs, root vegetables, and even occasionally apples. I list the specifics because all are like gold for a vegan living in Alaska. Vegan Thai food, prepared salads, raw flax, kale and beet crackers, kombucha, coffee, harvested seaweed, jams, jellies, and personal care products are plentiful at the Saturday market. Most produce vendors, the salsa vendor, and the vegan baking vendor sell on both Saturday and Wednesday, other specialty vendors may not sell on Wednesday. The Wednesday market is usually much less crowded than the Saturday market.

Pros: Tons of produce, baked, raw & fermented options, Great value- you can taste the freshness in AK, Social and local interest events at the market

Cons: Overcrowded early in the season, Tricky parking, but nothing like lower 48 parking
