The mission of the Mat-Su Farm Market is to provide a market venue for area farmers and producers, to provide superior quality goods and foods and to provide a business basis for the Mat-Su Valley, Alaska. Mat-Su Farmer’s Market also provides services to areas who are farther away. Lists of towns, locations, and times are posted online.
Families that had moved to the State of Alaska in the 1935’s began forming colony’s, where people would live, farm, etc. The Matanuska Colony was one of more than 100 New Deal projects created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in an attempt to end nationwide unemployment and help Americans rebuild their lives. Farmers markets made it so the colonists could buy and sell produce and other items. Many descendants of the original colonist remained in Alaska and some are operating original colony farms today.
Kenai’s Saturday Market will take place at the Kenai Visitor & Cultural Center. Local vendors and their locations may vary each week, but expect to find produce, jams, fresh bread, flowers, arts and crafts and much more!
When: May-September, Saturday from 10am-5pm
