  • I wish I had a tape measure at last Saturday’s Homer Farmers Market.  That broccoli and cauliflower must have been at least 10 inches across. Here we haven’t even reached July yet and we are already getting produce that big.   Whether it is the huge broccoli from the Chmielowiecs or Lo...

  • Here is another reason for me to heap praise on the Homer Farmers Market. The community-building atmosphere there does not end with the locally grown food and the ability to run into everyone you know in town there on a given Saturday. It also integrates kids as part of that community. Last Saturday...

  • People come to Homer every year to have some kind of vacation adventure. There is always something for the adventurous down at the Homer Farmers Market.  If you are an adventurous grower, go ahead and try some okra, pepper or tomatillo, even watermelon or cantaloupe starts for your greenhouse. ...

  • I have to apologize. It seems I have boasted about our local farmers so much that I may have aided in the creation of a false impression — an impression that we have plenty of local food if we just get down to the Homer Farmers Market and buy it.  I hate to say it, but there are probably only...

So that means a farmer has to baby them. The first way to get early veggies is with cover. High tunnels have been a windfall in ...

  • How can it be that even though it is the earliest date the Homer Farmers Market has ever opened, it feels so late? Yes, it’s finally Memorial Day weekend and time to jump into our favorite local food access point.  It’s like the season is just opening for hunting. Hunting veggies....

  • Even though the Homer Farmers Market had its last official market last weekend, you will most definitely be seeing crisp fresh veggies offered by dedicated vendors down at the Market this Saturday as well. This has been a productive year and vegetables don’t follow the calendar.  But that sum...

  • Marking the last official Market of the season, this weekend is the traditional Harvest Meal down at the Homer Farmers Market.   At noon you will find huge pots of veggie soup created from local produce and potluck dishes from community members.   It amazes many visitors to Alaska that our...

  • Each booth down at the Homer Farmers Market is only 10-by-10 feet.  Pouring out of the booth are incredible amounts of produce and crafts, food and flowers.But even all that doesn’t show the different things that go on the rest of the week in the lives of our Market vendors.  The contrib...

  • Signs of fall are in the air. This is the time of the year when I start getting questions about how much longer the Homer Farmers Market will be going. I always love to point out that it will go through the month of September and then continue as long as our dedicated farmers are willing to keep com...
