Small artisan market of about 7 stalls selling Alaskan made products., including large photos and jewellery. Prices are quite high but understandable . The artists/sellers charming and chatty. Don't expect too many bargains!

Not many booths set up on the weekend we attended the market, but the booths that were set up consisted of high quality crafted items. Really good market, but thought there would be more than just a few booths.

We stumbled across this place, while looking for somewhere to park. What a good find. The artists there are truly talented. The one lady sells very interesting jewelry made from porcupine quills. Another has awesome glass necklaces, with small flecks of gold. Or cute bamboo socks. Or really nice lotions. Definitely check it out if you are there when it... More

It was nice to se the local artisan's work in one location. The artisans were very friendly and their work very impressive ranging from great artwork illustrating the Alaskan landscape in quite unique fashion as well as jewellery and crafts.

Walking down "Main Street" of Talkeetna, you'll see a sign on a side street indicating an Open Air Market. Just a short couple-minute walk away, you'll come to a courtyard with tents housing the 10 or so booths of the open air market. All of the artisans are very friendly and locals. The booths ranged from socks and clothing items... More

We were able to hit this market before we left town on Saturday, and were very glad we stuck around for it to open! All of the venders were so friendly, and had such nice things for sale. Excellent opportunity to pick up items made by local artists!
