Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Saturday, September 7, 2013

8 a.m. to 12 noon

September has come, but cannot decide if it is autumn or still summer.  The cool mornings with ground fog are beautiful.

The Atchison Art Association will be with us this Saturday.  Come by their booth, have breakfast, and enjoy their activity.  The September Market Bundle Giveaway will also take place this Saturday.

We will have one more Market Bundle Giveaway on the first Saturday of October.  Go by Lynn Hoffman’s stand to register.

Musicians are welcome to play at the Market.  Just call me (Betty Fischer) so I can advertise for you (913 709 5050).

Leek Potato Pancakes Recipe


  • 1/2 pound russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 pounds medium leeks (white portion only), thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, divided
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream


  • Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender, adding leeks during the last 3 minutes. Drain.
  • Transfer potatoes to a large bowl; mash with eggs, bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. Stir in leeks. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into oil. Fry in batches until golden brown on both sides, using remaining oil as needed. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sour cream. Yield: 12 pancakes.
