  • Market may be officially over, but growers still plan to sell By KYRA WAGNER FOR THE HOMER NEWS Yes, the Homer Farmers Market is “officially” over. No more credit card machine, no more music, no more Market memorabilia. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be a place to get fresh and local...

  • The days are getting shorter. That simply means that there is more to try to cram into smaller days, right? One thing you need to cram into these shorter days is the last official Homer Farmers Market and its Harvest Meal Potluck. The Harvest Meal gives you the chance to knock out several things on ...

  • If you are also a big fan of the Homer Farmers Market, you probably get their e-newsletter and see that there are recipes in it every week. Some folks just know food and flavor so well that they make amazing dishes without recipes. Some, like me, only make good taste testers. But I get brave when th...

  • I take inventory of the kinds of veggies being sold at the Homer Farmers Market every week. This means that I walk around with a clip board and look official even though I am not doing a doggone thing to help organize or set up the Market.

  • Does fall always come in August? For some reason the red leaves of the fireweed are a little extra shocking to me this year. Luckily there is no reason to hibernate yet. Instead it is simply time to plan ahead. Have you gotten your fill of your favorite fresh veggies yet? It would be nice if we coul...

  • What is a farmer to do when the end of the Market rolls around and there are veggies left over? I have the feeling that farmers eat a lot of pickles and sauerkraut. I have a neighbor who pickles everything that gets ahead of her in her garden: turnips, peas, beans, you name it. Pickling can be swe...

  • The cutest day of the summer is upon us. The Homer Farmers Market Zucchini Festival will be this weekend. This silly festival of fun is perfect for the whole family and even celebrates one of the most maligned vegetables around....

  • This is the season for all kinds of Alaskan berries, but it is definitely the time for raspberries. Picking (and eating) in our garden the other day I realized that raspberries are the perfect food to showcase the state of our food system. First of all, just like I wonder why everyone doesn’t grow...

  • This season is moving fast. Summer always does, but never like this. There are already beans and peas and, yes, pumpkins down at the Homer Farmers Market. Our early season caught Bob Durr by surprise. He planted hundreds of pumpkins this year figuring that they would be ready for decorating for Hall...

  • I made a huge mistake at the Homer Farmers Market last week. I told a friend who was visiting from out of town that I would meet him there. And then I forgot to specify the time. I didn’t have his number so I couldn’t call and check in. I just had to see if he came and hope I saw him in the crow...
