July 1 at the Market – Kid’s Event Too

Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, July 1, 2015

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

We are already beginning the mid-summer month of July! Our gardens are producing corn and sun ripened tomatoes now as well as many other choices.

Rachel Lanter, the intern at the Atchison County Extension Office, will be back with “Seeds and Leaves” Veggie Petting Zoo. Bring your kids to look at a variety of garden seeds and try to guess which vegetable they will produce when planted.

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, cucumbers, kale, Swiss chard, fresh garlic, carrots, red, white, and blue new potatoes, eggs from organic and grass fed hens, assorted herb plants – all grown chemical free.
