Center Market In Full Swing


by Natalie Travis

 While the summer may be winding down, the Center Market at the Sears Parking lot in Midtown is in full swing.

  One local farmer says--summer crops have been slow this season and some produce is now ready for purchase.

   It's open Wednesdays from 11am to 6pm and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.

Market Officials say--buying Alaska Grown supports our state's economy and customers can also expect fresh vegetables and fruits.

   "If you look at our strawberries, my wife picked them yesterday [August 2nd] before lunch, we picked cucumbers in the afternoon while we were washing other vegetables," said Alex Davis, co-owner of Center Market.

    Right now the Center Market is scheduled to end October 12th.
