• Don’t forget Saturday is the first Sitka Farmers Market of the summer

The first Sitka Farmers Market of the summer takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, July 16, at Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall (235 Katlian St.).

This will be the first of five full Sitka Farmers Markets this summer, with the schedule running on alternate Saturdays (July 16, 30, Aug. 13, 27 and Sept. 10). The markets are a good place to buy local, Sitka-grown veggies, wild fish harvested from the waters around Sitka, fresh bread backed in Sitka, arts and crafts made by Sitka artists, and more. We usually have a demonstration table where people cook up food samples, a music tent and a kids’ table.

For more information, contact Sitka Farmers Market Manager Linda Wilson at 747-3096 (evenings or weekends) or lawilson87@hotmail.com.
