In Alaska, going to the store is a little bit more challenging than in most places. Of course, in the larger cities and towns there are a variety of national chains, but in smaller places it is harder to get things you might want. Rural people sometimes visit a city like Anchorage or Fairbanks to buy bulk supplies, but for most of the year they are dependent on the local store.
The small, independent grocery stores in Alaska have long been a staple of life in the far North. The trading posts of the frontier evolved into the small neighborhood grocery stores we still see in Alaska. Visit these stores to pick up anything you need while in the towns. They may not have everything you’ve ever dreamed of, but the local charm and customer service more than make up for it.
This place is right in the heart of Delta farm country and the produce section is fresh as can be. They also have a large population of Russian descent and there are Russian products throughout the store, as well as a full deli, coffee stand and bakery. This place is an oasis for delicious vegetables on the road.
