The South Anchorage FM seems to be the only place to get locally made tofu. If you have been put off by tofu in the past, you really need to try fresh tofu. I find the majority of tofu on supermarket shelves rather bitter tasting with off flavors. There is no comparison to Alaska Sprouts tofu. They also sell various sprouts and shoots for about $3.

Rempel’s Farm is also at the market offering local organic produce. A new vegetable (for me) was the snow apple turnips. I asked “what is this?” and was given a slice to eat. Crunchy and delicious! I’ve never been overly fond of turnips but these changed my thinking and I bought several.

|Parsnips and potatoes.|
|Rise and Shine Bakery's Olive Bread $7.|
|Seeded Whole Wheat Bread $6.|
WineStyles was also at the market offering 3 tastes of wine for a $10 donation to a non-profit farmer organization. Two of the wines were okay and I loved the Roblar 2009 Sauvignon Blanc. Very delicious if a bit overpriced at $19.
I find myself returning to the South Anchorage market because of the tofu and organic produce. And a wine tasting is also fun too!
