Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Summer must be over!  Today, Wednesday, is the last day for sweet corn!  Come today you’re your mid-week produce needs.

Lynn Hoffman, the market manager, will draw the winning registration later this week for the last Bundle Give-Away of the 2013 season.  The winner will be notified so s/he can pick up the bundle on Saturday, October 5.

This coming Saturday Jessica Kaczek and her uncle, Steve Lacey will entertain us again with violin/fiddle music.  They got rained out last Saturday.  Come and enjoy the music!

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).
