Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, June 24, 2015

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Thank goodness for somewhat cooler weather! Now if we can only have rain during the night – Camelot style!!! Our vendors are adding new produce to their stands as the summer progresses.

Lynn Hoffman, our market manager, can scan credit, debit, and SNAP cards. SNAP card users can double their purchase for every $1 scanned (up to $25 per market day). So with each swipe SNAP users can purchase from $2 to $50. Tokens do not have to be used on one day, but can be used on a later market day. Great way to get lots of fresh, local produce!

This Wednesday the following vendors plan to be at the market:

Cedar Lane Farm (Carrie Kesse and Kirk Russell) Summer squash, zucchini, cucumber, kale, Swiss chard, salad turnips, garlic scape, eggs from organic and grass fed hens, assorted herb plants – all grown chemical free.

Earl Farms (Dan and Trina Earl) Onions, lettuce, spinach, eggs and possibly peas.

Genova Farms Produce (Debbie and Mark Genova and children) Green onions, kale, new potatoes, squash, and red and white sweet onions.
