Just a "heads up" - the US CBP has restrictions on importing food-stuffs (i.e., on entry to Alaska from Canada - pre-clearance seems to be available at Prince Rupert).


Enjoy the trip  (especially if you can do the inside passage during daylight hours).

In Vancouver:

Two Rivers is great for specialty meats.  Fraser is a good contact there.
Intercity Packers does a great job, too.  Ask for Garner.

Produce, you can shop at Granville Island or order from Fresh Point/Allied Foods.  Grant is the man to speak with with them.  Also, Jim Koo and Yen Brothers. 

For more specialty items, there's Mikuni Wild Harvest, Bosa, Cioffi's, Les Amis De Fromage, Far-Met/Qualifirst.

Albion and Seven Seas are both good for seafood.


I can give you more, just lemme know if you need.

Shaun Byers. Pacific Yacht Management in Seattle ships yacht quality provisions to Alaska and works in harmony with Yacht Services of Alaska. There may be things you need that must come up from Settle and PYM can take care of it. In Vancouver if you don't have time to get out, contact Kevin O'Brien x yacht crew ashore helping chefs in need

Just got back from there myself. Provisioning in Petersburg was pretty easy -- the local Grocery even had an organic section, although they don't stock every day. Sitka was a little harder, but I didn't have to do the full deal since the "relief chef" had that duty. But, I'd be interested in any finds you discovered in your time up in that neck of the woods.
