Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, June 14, 2014

8 a.m. to 12 noon

Summer events continue this weekend with Father’s Day on Sunday. Stock up at the market on Dad’s favorite produce and we now have local beef! Then on Saturday and Sunday the Juneteenth celebration will take place. Join the community for free food and entertainment. If you a Benedictine grad, this is also Reunion Weekend. (One of our vendors will celebrate his 50th this year – guess who???)

We will have entertainment today from Reid and Dixon (R2D).

Next weekend we will have two community organizations at the market: the Atchison Aviator 4-H club and Project Concern.

Don’t forget to register with our market manager, Lyn Hoffman, for the July bundle give-away.

Recipe of the Week: One of the delicate flavors of late springtime is a sugar snap pea. Here is a very simple and quick recipe from the “Barefoot Contessa”, Ina Garten.

Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas

Total Time: 20 min; Prep: 15 min; Cook: 5 min

Yield: 6 servings


1 1/2 pounds fresh sugar snap peas
1 tablespoon good olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Sea salt or fleur de sel, for serving


Remove and discard the stem end and string from each sugar snap pod.

Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the sugar snap peas, salt and pepper and saute, tossing occasionally for 3 to 5 minutes, until the sugar snap peas are crisp tender.

Place the sugar snap peas in a serving bowl, sprinkle with sea salt and serve.
