Alaska is BIG!! This was quite a project but we wanted to make it easier for you to stay as local as possible!
The benefits of eating local are outstanding!
We have personally spoken with each of these local providers of deliciousness and their commitment to their customer base is beyond measure!
If we've missed important businesses, please let us know!!

When we started this project we did not realize how many options there are for locally sourced produce!
It looks like they're ripe for the pickin'!
Below you'll find the short list but we encourage you to do further research and let us know about your favorite local growers!
** Local Produce IS SEASONAL IN MOST CASES**

The other is Downtown at
718 K Street, 907-644-3001
The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is so welcoming at both locations! Both stores have a café and smoothie stand with delicious drinks!
Artic Harvest AK
Artic Harvest has joined several Alaskan farms together to provide a wonderful and highly necessary service to Alaska! A locally sourced produce subscription and grocery delivery service!
There are a couple options available with Artic Harvest; you can order fresh, locally sourced fruits, vegetables and products through their website or you can choose to buy a Farm Share.
A Farm Share is similar to buying a subscription. You pay annually and have fresh fruits and veggies delivered to your door or pick-up site. They do have size options available or different needs!
Blue Market AK is a revolutionary and old world shopping experience! Walking in the door is like taking a step back to a simpler time when we would go to the grocer fill our handheld baskets or refill our containers with what we would need for the week and take it home.
Not only is the store well laid out but it is also well thought out! You can find everything you need for your home, all local and eco-friendly, along with ready to use, pre-sanitized reusable containers! From organic, homemade lotions and body products to farm fresh veggies, meat, dairy, herbs and grains, even gourmet chocolates! Blue Market AK has it all!
Located on 31st, off Minnesota in Anchorage and well worth the trip!
1406 W 31st Ave, Anchorage, AK 99503
Farm Fresh Produce
Farm 779 Fermented Foods
Farm779 is a working peony farm and apiary located on Lazy Mountain just outside of Palmer Alaska. Fermented foods were introduced in 2012 as a complementary therapy option for a personal friend at the end stages of cancer treatment. Coconut Kefir and Rosemary Magnesium Balm were the initial offerings. Over the years we have expanded our product lines to include our signature Peony Root Kombucha Tea and a full line of Remple Farm Certified Organic krauts and vegetable blends. We choose Remple Farm as we fully trust the growing practices to be pristine and nutrient dense.
Providing nutrient dense immune system support is what we do. We also offer true human connection as a direct to consumer permitted business in Anchorage and the MatSu valley. If you are healing we want to be on your team. Available on Wednesday afternoons from 3-5PM at Sol Vitality in Wasilla and Saturdays at BlueMarketAK in the parking lot at 12 noon. Check our facebook page "events tab" for additional popups, meetups and classes.
