Atchison Farmers’ Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, September 25, 2013
2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The Taste of Atchison event was a great success. The weather was beautiful. Haven Fry made 240 mini cupcakes – they were gone within 45 minutes! We had over 150 people stop at our booth. Now they all need to come get their fresh produce at the Market.
Lynn Hoffman, the market manager, is back from vacation. She will draw the winning registration later this week for the last Bundle Give-Away of the 2013 season. The winner will be notified so they can pick up the bundle on Saturday, September 28.
This coming Saturday Jessica Kaczek and her uncle, Steve Lacey will entertain us again 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).
