Tanana Valley Farmers Market
The words Alaska and farmers market don’t seem compatible but a lot of vegetables grow very well in the Alaskan interior. You won’t find peaches or melons but any root vegetable or cool weather lover such as lettuce, peas and broccoli grows wonderfully. Tomatoes are grown in greenhouses. The spiky thing is cauliflower.
The farmers market has a small permanent building and a paved lot where the sellers set up their stands so it’s easy to roll around. The parking lot is packed dirt and gravel.
The parking lot is fairly big but the market is popular so you may have to park on the outskirts if your RV is large. Market
