Pete Karras, of Pete's Sourdough Bread, left, and Mimi Goodwin, of Just Arts, right, receive the "Table of the Day Award" from Sitka Farmers Market volunteer Maybelle Filler after the season's second market on Aug. 1. The Sitka Local Foods Network selected the shared table - which featured Pete's freshly baked sourdough bread and Mimi's beaded artwork - to receive the $25 cash prize, an Alaska Farmers Market Association tote bag, a bouquet of flowers and a certificate of appreciation. An identical prize package will be awarded to a deserving vendor at each of the three remaining Sitka Farmers Markets. The third market of the season takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall in Sitka. For more information, visit www.sitkalocalfoodsnetwork.org.
