Alaska Fruits & Vegetables
Alaska Farmers Markets
Alaska GameMore than other states, Alaska has hunters who feed themselves and their families with their take. Moose licenses are particularly prized in The Last Frontier (see this excellent description of the importance of moose in the Alaskan diet). Bear, mountain goats, elk, caribou... they all come into play.
Want real Alaska salmon? Look for wild-caught, Alaska salmon from your fishmonger or you can buy direct from a fishing family at Copper River Fish Market. Once you have it, check out How to Cook Salmon.
For amazing Yukon salmon smoked in the traditional way, go to Kwik'pak Fisheries. They take the wonderfully fatty salmon that spawn in the amazingly long Yukon River and smoke it into delicious plain or seasoned smoked salmon, tradition Keta strips, sweet Keta candy, and full smoked filets.
These get frozen or made into jams and jellies to keep winter sweet. See How to Freeze Berries for tips.
For people who'd rather hunt than gather, or stay home rather than either, the Seldovia Village Tribe (operating as Alaska Pure Berry) out of Seldovia, Alaska makes delicious wild blueberry jam and jelly, wild salmonberry jam and jelly, and even fireweed jelly and pepper jelly.
Alaska Food Festivals
As you might expect, food festivals in Alaska tend to focus on the state's bountiful seafood.
