The Greens Are In!

Lucky Market shoppers will find that the GREENS ARE IN! 
So are the yellows, blues, purples, pinksreds and more!
Another FULL Market of vendors includes artisans, farmers, growers and the best of locally cooked food fare. Saturday discover all things FRESH and ARTFUL, including Quail eggs, pottery, cheese curds, tamales, gourmet marshmallows, fiber arts, glasswork, Alaska SPOT SHRIMP, plant starts, ORGANIC BREAD, sewing repair services, art prints, WILD ALASKA HOEY, coffee beans, hand milled SOAP and MORE PLANT STARTS! 
It's not too late to START YOUR GARDEN...
Author Michael Pollan said in reference to the Victory Gardens of World War I, “Growing some, even just a little, of your own food is in fact one of the most powerful things an individual can do.” Supporting local growers at the Spenard Farmers Market is both putting money into our local economy and showing demand for a self-reliant Alaska where food is grown close to home.

THANK YOU Chilkoot Charlie's -for your continued and generous support!

    It's never too late to start your garden! Claytonia, mache, spinach, kale, tatsoi, and fava beans can all be started late in the year here, most should grow through light frosts and some will continue to spring with a row cover. Winter greens can be surprisingly sweet. Potato onions, garlic, & many other bulbs are best planted in late fall as well. If you're growing dwarf sweet corn, it's just about time to set out transplants!
