A Great Autumn Day at the Market

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, October 9, 2013

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Isn’t this weather wonderful!  The nights are cool enough for a blanket, but the days are still shirtsleeve warm.  It is a great time to work in our gardens harvesting the end of summer produce and readying the garden for its winter rest.  Those of us with hoop houses are amending the soil and preparing them for winter crops.  It’s great to have fresh greens in January!

Come to the market today to check out your mid-week produce needs.

We have two “official” Saturdays and one Wednesday left this season.  October 19th will be our last official day for this season.  However, if our vendors still have produce, they may still come to the market to bring you their produce.

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).
