Atchison Farmers’ Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, October 8, 2014
8 a.m. to 12 noon
Our vendors/producers are still working hard to bring you fall vegetables and fruits. Come get your mid-week needs.
Please check out the End of Season Survey that was sent to you via e-mail Monday evening. We really want your input and suggestions for new vegetables, etc. that you would like to see next season.
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.
See you at the Market.
