There’s a Lot Going on at the Market

Atchison Farmers Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Saturday, July 11, 2015

8 a.m. to Noon

Wasn’t the Man v. Grill event a lot of fun? Susan Turnbull has already had guys ask her if they can be in the contest. We’ll have to do that again next year! Thank you Jeff, Doug, and Matt. You guys were great!  And having KAIR Radio at the Market!!

This Saturday, the Market will host a fundraiser for the Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter (DoVES). They will be selling “garage sale items” on the East end of the Market.

Sign up with Lynn Hoffman, our market manager, for the August Bundle Give Away, which will take place on August 1.

Lynn can also assist you if you need to use your credit, debit, or SNAP card at the market. We also accept Chamber of Commerce gift cards, Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons and coupons from the Atchison Community Health Clinic. And, of course, you may purchase Atchison Farmers’ Market gift certificates to give as gifts to your family and friends.

If you are a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/food stamp) recipient, we invite you to double your buying power each market day with “Market Match.” For every $1 (up to $25 per market day) you swipe on your card, you will receive $2 worth of tokens to use at the market. (Example: swipe your card for $10 and get $20 of tokens to spend at the Market.) This is a wonderful way to buy fresh, local produce for your family. We also have many recipe cards available from Savor the Season.
