Muldoon Market

Anchorage for Free    

Partly because I want to share my hometown with the world, and partly to motivate me to get out and enjoy it, I've decided to post a series of fun places to see in Anchorage for free. Today, I visited the Muldoon Market,held on Saturdays throughout the summer at Begich Middle School. This isn't the big Saturday market downtown, just a neighborhood market where vendors can sell their fresh farm produce and crafts. 


The items aren't free, but the entertainment is. Today's singer had a wonderful voice. There's was a clown, a bubble fun area for the kids, and a table of free recipe cards and books. I dropped off a couple of books I'd finished reading, hoping someone who doesn't know about the Harlequin Heartwarming line will discover them and love them. 





Summer just got here, so there were no carrots or fresh potatoes yet, but there were salad greens and starter plants for sale. Lots of fun crafts: crochet, art, photography, fabric. Even a pipecleaner guy. Yes, that car he's wearing is made of pipecleaners. Bake sale items and other good stuff to eat. Some adorable child-size aprons that made me wish I had a granddaughter to shop for. Mostly there were just lots of people out sharing their talents and enjoying the day. 





I ended up with some recipe cards, moose notecards for an upcoming giveaway, and a pack of poppies to plant in my flowerbed. 


Are you a fan of farmer's markets?

    1. It does feel good. I have to keep a firm rein to remind myself I can't buy any more stuff for the house until I've gone through the cabinets and made room. I like to get herbs and carrots there, because Alaska carrots are the sweetest. What are the special crops where you live?
