A New Event this Wednesday: Rachel Lanter, an intern with the Atchison County Extension Office and a K-State student, will guide children through the “Veggie Petting Zoo”. Kids will be able to look at, touch, measure, smell, taste, and make simple snacks from veggies from our market vendors. She will be at our market every other Wednesday through July (June 17, July 1, July 15, and July 29). We are so happy she will be at our market this summer!
