Salt & Soil Marketplace is a project that was initiated by the Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition, Takshanuk Watershed Council, Spruce Root Economic Development, and the Sustainable Southeast Partnership. These organizations believe that communities thrive when they have access to locally produced healthful foods and can support the local business that provides it.

The Salt & Soil Marketplace operations and policy decisions are made by the Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition. An Advisory Committee that represents farmers, fishers, customers, and other producers provide input and direction that informs the Marketplace development.
