Market Directory

Alaska Farmers Markets 2013

Food Assistance at the Farmers’ Market

Many farmers markets in Alaska now accept Quest cards (also known as Food Stamps or SNAP), WIC Farmers’ Market Coupons, WIC Fruit and Vegetable Vouchers, and Senior Farmers’ Market Coupons. Scroll down to see which markets participate in these programs. For more information about these programs, look on the Quest & WIC/Senior Nutrition Programs page.

This QUEST logo indicates that the market accepts Quest cards (Food Stamps and TANF benefits).

PLEASE NOTE:  A farmers market signs up to accept Quest cards, whereas individual farms sign up for the WIC/Senior Farmers Market Nutrition programs. For example, if a market accepts Quest cards, that doesn’t necessarily mean that all or any of the vendors accept WIC/Senior FMNP coupons. In the directory below, we are just listing the markets that accept Quest cards, and not all the farms that accept WIC/Senior FMNP coupons.
