Wednesday, July 8, Brings Peppers to the Market

Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, July 8, 2015

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Wednesday is here again and time for the Farmers’ Market mid-week produce. Many of you were asking about peppers – one of our vendors will have them at the market today.

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, new potatoes, eggs from organic and grass fed hens, assorted herb plants – all grown chemical free.
