It’s that time of year -- The month of May means Farmers Markets are back on the scene in Alaska’s largest city, ramping up for a new season.

The Spenard Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of Chilkoot Charlie’s. It features farmers, crafts, food vendors, music and crafts for the kids, and is always a great time. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

South Anchorage Market started two weeks ago with beautiful plant starters, hand crafted breads and more. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturdays at the Subway/Cellular One Sports Centre at Old Seward and O’Malley.

The Anchorage Farmers Market on 15th and Cordova, in the Central Lutheran Church, is in its third week.
