The 2017 Alaska State Farmers Market Organizers Conference
hopes to bring together farmers market organizers, farmers, state
agencies and partner organizations to share information and
strengthen state farmers market networks.
Join us in March at the amazing waterfront Second Star Event Facility in Homer,
Alaska. With sweeping views of the bay, full kitchen, sauna, and onsite theatre,
we are planning a one of a kind experience for participants. Scholarship recipients
will be housed on site. Many thanks to the generosity of the management!
Homer is located 225 miles south of Anchorage- around 4-5 hour drive during the winter, depending on the weather. There are several daily flights into Homer from Anchorage (RAVN Airlines). Car rentals from the Anchorage airport are relatively cheap this time of year as well.
Once you're in Homer, you'll most likely want a car or bike- the conference facility is about 3 miles from town, and we have no public transportation. Bike paths are easily accessed from the site. Car rentals are available from the Homer Airport, as well as off site at Adventure Car Rentals (they will leave cars at the airport for customers)
Homer offers a variety of accommodations- the choices are endless! We've negotiated special rates with the following supporters:
