The harsh climate and permafrost of the sub-Arctic make local agriculture extremely difficult. But 65 miles north of Nome, farming is taking place at Pilgrim Hot Springs, one of Alaska’s most remarkable places.

Pilgrim Produce hopes to have a weekly farmer’s market stand within Nome city limits starting up on Saturdays sometime this summer. According to Robert Bensin with BSDC, more information about the vegetables for sale, the selling times, and the stand location will be forthcoming.
