Backroads America: Tanana Valley Farmers Market

Alaskan Made or Grown

The Tanana Valley Farmers Market in Fairbanks, Alaska, is the only market in Alaska that requires all products sold be made, grown, or have value added in Alaska.

There are indoor and outdoor vendors selling art, crafts, produce, food products, clothing, jewelry, and other products.

A variety of ethnic food booths are doing business at the market. But don’t look for a Coke or Pepsi. They aren’t made in Alaska.

One of my sisters is a vendor. Her business, Ruth’s Rocks, sells painted rocks and glassware.

If you visit the Fairbanks area in the summer, look for the market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Say hello to my sister. Buy Alaskan.
