I had fun visiting all the booths. I would recommend stopping by if you're in Anchorage on a Saturday. I regret not buying some of the things I was hesitant about, so if I ever... read more

This market was the first thing I visited when in Anchorage. It was late afternoon on a Sunday (yes, the name is Saturday market but it's open only on Sundays), the market was just in front of our hotel (Hilton Anchorage) and as it was a day before 4th of July, there was a festive mood at the market. There... More

I have been to the market a number of times, but it had been a while since I'd been. And you know how it is: you sometimes take for granted or overlook the places that tourists flock to in your own city of residence, what with busy work schedules and such. But after procrastinating all of last summer, I finally... More

I had fun visiting all the booths. I would recommend stopping by if you're in Anchorage on a Saturday. I regret not buying some of the things I was hesitant about, so if I ever make it back, I'll be sure to be more confident!

Reindeer quesadillas are a THING, and everyone should know about them. But somehow, the market paled in comparison to the food carts. There were definitely some interesting vendors there, but I would recommend going adults-only if you're really looking to shop - it's hard to keep an eye on kiddos with everything that's going on.

I was in Alaska visiting my son and his family and told them I wanted to go to the market. They had been there in Anchorage and just hadn't been. It was a nice couple of hours. Parking wasn't too bad, we did have to walk about 6 blocks but the views are just beautiful so we didn't really care!... More

Even in a light drizzle (Alaskan liquid sunshine) this is a fun tourist thing to do. Seems to be many more Chinese shirts and "junk" stands than in past years. Less emphasis on farmers market produce and more "stuff" for sale. Plenty of food stands with local fare. Good size market and parking close by can be tight on a... More

This is a great place to go shopping and purchase crafts and other goods native to Alaska. I found fur hats, charms, but the best was having my photo taken with sled dogs. I was dressed in a fur coat holding skis and a Husky Puppy. This was so much fun and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

We attended the last market of the year. There was a lot of art to view (and purchase) and a lot of different types of food to try. It was fun to be there and just feel the energy

It is very hard to make this a fair review. It absolutely poured the morning we were there and a lot of the vendors were not there. I will give credit to the ones who did show up. We were looking for very specific Alaskan crafts and were able to find some antler artifact zipper pulls we wanted. That made... More
