We had a decent crowd, with many people hanging out outside to listen to Slack Tide play. A slideshow with scenes from the sixth market is below.
Also, don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 19th annual Running of the Boots, a costumed fun run that serves as a fundraiser for the Sitka Local Food Network. The Running of the Boots will be at 11 a.m. (registration at 10 a.m., costume contest about 10:30 a.m.) on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the tent near St. Michael’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral on Lincoln Street. (there is an entry fee of $5 per person or $20 for families). Some late-season vegetables will be available for sale at this event. To learn more, click this link for details.
Finally, don’t forget to vote for the Sitka Local Foods Network in the 50 States for Good contest. We are Alaska’s only finalist in the national contest, where 51 nonprofit organization finalists (one from each state and the District of Columbia) have a chance to win $10,000 from Tom’s of Maine, which will award grants of $10,000 each to the top 15 vote-getters in an online vote. You can vote for us once each day through Oct. 15 by going to http://www.50statesforgood.com/ and following the instructions. We appreciate your support.
