Atchison Farmers’ Market, Wednesday, June 5

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, June 5, 2013

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

The number of vendors for the Wednesday market is increasing.  Come to the market for your middle of the week produce shopping and delicious coffee, tea, and other beverages.

But don’t forget the Saturday market.  We will have at least two special events going on:  1) Janean Bowen, the AFM secretary/treasurer, will demonstrate some recipes with fresh Spring vegetables; and 2) Project Concern will have a fundraiser at the market.  As funds have been cut for senior services, Project Concern is doing fundraising.  This one will be for their “Senior Prom” event.  Come and support our Atchison seniors.  There may also be some musicians.  Local musicians are always invited to come and play at the market.
