Homer, Alaska Farmers Market
Updated: May 17, 2019
It's that time of year again when mountains grow greener and farmers start harvesting! This is one of my favorite Summer events, as you'll see a majority of us "Homerites" take pride in growing and sharing our local harvest at the Homer Farmers Market! Check out the dates, times and our favorite vendor to look out for below.
Opening Day- May 25th thru September 28th
Whether you're visiting Alaska in our pre-season or venturing into the Fall, we have plenty of harvest and artistic trends to share! With opening day starting May 25th, you'll get to experience our early harvest of local fruits, veggies, herbs, and hand made pies!
As we venture into the peak of Summer, harvest is in full bloom, vendors are full of goodies, and the crowds grow increasingly large- so make sure you show up early!
Nothing says Fall is here than visiting the marketing in September! Local berries are ready, blooming flowers, hot ciders, and local crafts perfect for the upcoming holidays swarm the market!
