On Saturday, Aug. 3, Sitka had not one, but two major local foods events in town — the third Sitka Farmers Market of the season at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Founders Hall and the fourth annual Sitka Seafood Festival at the Sheldon Jackson Campus.
The Sitka Farmers Market was a little bit smaller than normal because some vendors had booths at the Sitka Seafood Festival, but there still was a decent crowd, especially after the early morning rain ended and the weather cleared up. There were a couple of vendors who had booths at both events.
The Sitka Seafood Festival, which had events from Thursday to Sunday, Aug. 1-4, opened Saturday morning with a parade from Totem Square to Sheldon Jackson Campus, where most of Saturday’s events took place. Both events featured local food, arts and crafts, and entertainment.
The fourth Sitka Farmers Market of the six planned this summer will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, at ANB Founders Hall. To learn more, keep watching this site.
