Cool Temperatures at the Wednesday Market

Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, August 13, 2014

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Is it August or April? These temperatures are unbelievable. It is time to plant our Fall gardens. But we still have all the top summer vegetables. Get your midweek produce today.

Remember that we will be on the Mall on Saturday, August 16, for the Tomato Festival, between 5th and 6th streets at our regular time. Susan Turnbull, Downtown Events Coordinator, is arranging volunteers to help you carry heavier bags of produce to your car. There will be salsa contests, bobbing for tomatoes, entertainment, and more.

Reminder: the Market is now able to accept credit, debit and SNAP cards. Just go to the Market Manager, Lyn Hoffman, (or Betty Fischer in her absence) and she can process your card. In exchange for a particular amount, she will give you tokens that can be used at any of the vendors.

Register for the September bundle give-away with the Lyn Hoffman.

If you know of any musicians, children’s or adult groups who would like to come to the market, let us know.

See you Saturday on the Mall.
