Market Manager Wins Specialty Salsa Contest and Local Produce for You

Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, August 20, 2014

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Congratulations to our Market Manager, Lyn, who won the specialty salsa contest at the Tomato Festival. Her entry was the Raspberry Salsa. Did you enjoy the Market on the Mall last Saturday?

We are back at our regular location for the rest of the season. The “wall” is looking beautiful and is progressing down the way to the West end. Come to get your mid-week produce and also look at the art project!

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. We have a couple of market days still open.

See you Saturday on the Mall.
