My goal is a complete and accurate listing of Alaska specialty, ethnic, and gourmet markets and purveyors. The listings are Anchorage-centric because that’s where I live. I’d greatly appreciate suggestions for listings outside the Anchorage area (or for additional listings in Anchorage). To submit additions or corrections to the listings, contact me.
