Who We Are

The Alaska Farmers Market Association supports and promotes vibrant and sustainable farmers markets throughout Alaska. Buying local produce and goods supports a stronger community, secures a sustainable food system for our future, and provides nutritious and delicious food to be enjoyed year-round. 

AFMA was launched in 2009. Our purpose is to gather critical information for shoppers, markets, CSAs, and vendors to build partnerships, promote opportunities and create resources for our stakeholders. We specialize in local food promotion, grant and funding assistance, developing resources, hosting events, training, and more!

Whether you are a local farmer, resident, food enthusiast, or visitor, we help you access what you’re looking for: fresh, high-quality Alaska products.
