What's wheaten at the Anchorage Farmers' Markets, 2013

Alison Arians shows off a fresh-baked loaf of Rise&Shine bread at the South Anchorage Farmers' Market.

Here's a sampling of what's wheaten from Anchorage Farmers' Markets at the end of June, 2013:

At Spenard Farmers' Market, Chilkoot Charlie's parking lot on Spenard Road:
  • Zoi and Bambino's Baby Food by the owners of Pizza Olympia offer homemade cous cous, noodles, orange and carrot biscotti, and more. They were there on June 22, but we didn't see them on June 29.

  • Tiers from Heaven, a cupcake truck, shows up in Spenard some weeks.

  • Russian piroshkis, borsch, and more at Grandma's Old Kitchen:

At the Anchorage Framers' Market, Parking lot of Central Lutheran Church at 15th and Cordova:
  • Turkey Red, from Palmer, has macaroons, breads, scones, and cookies [photo was taken on a cold day at the end of May -- it's warmer now].

Downtown, at Third Avenue between C and E Streets, the Anchorage Market and Festival every Saturday is the place to go for things made with wheat -- funnel cakes,wraps, empanadas, and more. 

  • Tonia's Biscotti, now baking in Homer, offers Lemon, Cranberry, chocolate, and many other flavors.

At the South Anchorage Farmers' Market, in the parking lot of the Subway/Cellular Sports Centre at the corner of Old Seward Highway and O'Malley Road:
  • Whole wheat sourdough bread from Rise&Shine Bakery, along with their other breads: baked potato, spent grain, chocolate cherry, and onion rye.
