The Harvest Moon Local Food Festival will return to Soldotna Creek Park on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
According to a release from the Kenai Local Food Connection, the event is the largest one-day farmer’s market on the Kenai Peninsula. It “spotlights local Alaskans who grow, harvest and produce a wide variety of Alaska Grown and Made in Alaska food and wellness products.”
The event will feature live music, cooking demonstrations, educational talks, food trucks, guided edible walks, a pie-baking contest and the Fermentation Station.
A wide array of locally produced products will be available from “local food entrepreneurs,” the release says. Some of those same products will be used in preparing the food served by the food trucks. The music, too, will be produced by local talent — closing with the KP Brass Band.
“The goal of the festival is to promote food security in the central Kenai Peninsula area; give consumers an opportunity to enjoy fresh, local foods; give producers an opportunity to reach a large market at the end of the growing season; and promote community health and wellness socially, as well as physically,” the release reads.
