Farmers market season is winding down. But there’s still one more chance to celebrate local growers.
“This is kind of the last big hurrah for local farmers to sell their produce and for locals to stock up if they’ve missed their opportunity," said Heidi Chay, with the Kenai Local Food Connection. The organization is holding its Harvest Moon Local Food Festival on Sept. 18.
Chay said the festival is in part a celebration of how far the local food scene has come, even just since 2013, when the festival first started.
