Tanana Valley Farmers Market provides fresh food May to September; quality gifts at Holiday Bazaar
While the Tanana Valley Farmers Market is a staple attraction throughout the summers in Fairbanks, the market’s Holiday Bazaar is a highlight of the winter season, known for its exhibits of Alaska Made and Alaska Grown products.
The bazaar is slated for Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Carlson Center.
As important as finding the right hand-crafted gift is, attendees also enjoy catching up with the local farmers, crafters and fellow market patrons.
The Tanana Valley Farmers Market showcases a wide variety of Alaska Grown produce and plants and Made in Alaska and Silver Hand arts and crafts, all symbols of excellence. It is the oldest established farmers market in Alaska and the only one located in its own permanent building.
At the market, you always find a great selection of fresh vegetables in season, displayed by growers who travel from throughout the Tanana Valley—an area larger than the state of Indiana—to participate. Vendors provide an abundant variety of vegetables and flowers. Included are bedding plants, trees, shrubs, flower baskets, the freshest produce and herbs. They also offer specialty baked goods, wild berry jams and jellies, meats and sausage, native handicrafts, jewelry, pottery, artwork, baskets, custom-made apparel, wildflower honey, flower bouquets and much more.
The mission of the market is to develop and promote Alaska’s agricultural, horticultural and cottage industries, providing quality produce and products to the public.
