How it works

Salt & Soil Marketplace connects Southeast Alaska food consumers and growers, fishermen, foragers, and gardeners through a community marketplace that merges the best of online and real-time shopping.

The Marketplace helps support local economies, keeps food dollars within our region and provides high quality local foods to our neighbors, helping Southeast Alaska be more sustainable, resilient, and prosperous.

  • Each week Salt & Soil Marketplace vendors, farmers, growers, fishermen, foragers and gardeners post their crop or catch to the online marketplace.

  • Members go online to select their products for the week: for example, one head of lettuce, a dozen oysters, two onions, three bunches of basil.

  • The vendor receives their order, and sends all the items ordered to the central aggregation sites in Juneau and Haines.

  • All items ordered have been combined for easy and convenient pick-up. Members come to the central pick-up point on a specified day and time with a bag or box to collect their order.

Once customers learn about all the great local foods they can get at Salt & Soil Marketplace, they'll sign up to become members right away.
