The Last “official” Market Day of the 2013 Season

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh,Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Saturday, October 19, 2013

8 a.m. to 12 noon

We say “goodby” for the 2013 season today.   However, if our vendors still have produce, they will continue to come to the market.  Watch for the e-newsletter for days they will come to the market this Fall and to keep up with what is going on in our gardens throughout the winter.

The Atchison Farmers’ Market would like to thank everyone who helped to make the market an enjoyable experience: musicians, fundraising groups, and food demonstrators.  We would also like thank the Atchison Chamber of Commerce and the City of Atchison for helping us throughout the season.

In preparation for the upcoming 2014 season, which will be our 16th year, we would like you to complete the short survey that will be available at the Long View Farm stand.  We value your comments and suggestions.
