Get Father’s Day Produce at the Saturday, June 15, Atchison Farmers Market

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Saturday, June 15, 2013

8 a.m. to 12 noon

Happy Father’s Day Weekend!  We hope you will come to the market to buy your produce and other needs for your celebration this weekend.  Last week a new vendor began selling at the market – Mallow Farm, selling herbs, lettuce bowls (you can take a scissors and cut your own), and flowers.

Beginning around 9 to 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, our featured entertainment will be Stephanie Glenn, singing and playing guitar.  Her “day job” is a nursing instructor, but she also writes music.  Stop by to enjoy her music.

If you know of any musicians who would like to play at the market, we would love to have them contact us to schedule a date.  Also, if your non-profit organization plans to do a fundraiser, we may be able to offer them a spot at the market on a Saturday.  Please contact me at 913 709 5050 or

Here is the recipe that Janean Bowen made on last Saturday.

South Beach Diet Edamame Salad

For a high-protein salad, this is delicious.

Edamame are vibrant, tasty green soybeans in the shells, and are readily available in most frozen sections of supermarkets and health food stores. This salad has a whopping 15 grams of protein to 18 grams of carbs – an unusual ratio. If edamame is not readily available, you can substitute chick peas.


1 bag (16 ounces) frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 bunch radishes (8 ounces), cut in half and thinly sliced
1 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Toss the edamame, vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, radishes, and cilantro together in a large bowl.

Serve chilled or at room temperature.   Serves 4.
See you on Saturday!
