Middle of September Market Newsletter

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, September 18, 2013

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

We finally had some rain.  It won’t help all of the produce and crops,  but it will help somewhat.  Our vendors still have a great variety for your mid-week and Saturday shopping.

Lynn Hoffman, the market manager, is still on vacation.  But you will still be able to register for the last market bundle give away.  I’ll have the sign-up slips for you to complete on Saturday (Betty Fischer).

Friday evening, the Atchison Farmers’ Market will participate in the Taste of Atchison event on the Mall from 5 to 8 p.m.  Haven Fry will give out mini cupcakes and visitors to the booth will be able to register for our October Bundle Give-Away.  Come to the event to see all the vendors present.

This coming Saturday Jessica Kaczek and her uncle, Steve Lacey will entertain us with violin/fiddle music.  Come and enjoy them!

The invitation for any and all Atchison musicians to come play at the market still stands.  Just give me a call and I’ll advertise for you (913 709 5050).
