The First Market Saturday in September

Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, September 6, 2014

8 a.m. to 12 noon

It’s the first Saturday of the month – September – and time for our Market Bundle Give Away. Vendors will each contribute one or more items for a large bag of produce, which will be given away to the winner around 10 a.m.

Reminder: the Market is able to accept credit, debit and SNAP cards. Just go to the Market Manager, Lyn Hoffman, 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.

Sign up for the last Market Bundle Give Away in October. Lyn has registration forms.

If you know of any musicians, children’s or adult groups who would like to come to the market, let us know. September 20 is still open and would love entertainment and/or groups fundraising.

See you at the Market.

Note: The Market officially runs through Saturday, October 19. But if vendors still have produce, they can sell beyond that date.

Recipe: Easy Bell Pepper Salsa (

You can’t get much easier than this recipe from “Simply Recipes” website. And it only takes 5 minutes of preparation time! And you should be able to get most of the fresh ingredients from our vendors.

Salsa doesn’t have to be made with tomatoes, nor does it even need fresh chiles. A quick and easy, delicious salsa to make to accompany steak and meat dishes is a bell pepper salsa, seasoned with red chile flakes, onions, and parsley, basil or arugula.


  • 1 large bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped arugula, basil, or parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes
  • 2 Tbsp sherry vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients into a small bowl and serve.
