Excellent day trip. So much to see and do and eat! Wow, beautiful hand made treasures, coffees, honeys, artist, wood carving, Alaska dress up picture tent. At least 50 food vendors, from reindeer hot dogs to fresh vegetables, homemade jams and jellies. It is all here. Excellent parking. Great day out.

We enjoyed our visit and found several artists selling their craft items at a fair rate. Not all items were affordable but we enjoyed seeing them. There were wonderful treats to eat and even ponies for the kids to ride. Take small bills for easier purchases. And there are public restrooms that are fairly clean.

Great place for souvenir shopping. Really not meant as a locals' market. There were many food tents so maybe a stop for lunch. Otherwise vendors had clothing, jewelry and Alaska style gifts.

Enjoy local delicacies and crafts. Gets crowded but worth the visit. Go hungry. Vendors are very nice, not pushy.

Great market. Mostly products from Alaskan craftsmen, some fruits and vegetables. Lots of food choices. Some of the same vendors as in Talkeetna. There is sidewalk chalk for kids at the totem pole.

We had lunch before going to the market - what a mistake, there was so much on offer here. There was music to listen to, market stalls to wander through and some beautiful sled dogs to have pictures taken with.

Do not eat before you come or you will be mad at yourself. I stopped at black coffee and got a cold brew, it was delicious. I loved talking to the various vendors, they were super knowledgeable. You can real Alaskan gifts here and support the local artist and economy. I bought super cute earrings and shirts that did not... More

Have your picture taken with the dog sled, listen to music or browse the many booths with jewelry, peanut brittle, local author on Alaska history, hats, knives, photography, fresh produce (berries), etc.. Some vendors have local goods, some have cheap goods.
