Wednesday Market across from the Post Office

Atchison Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, July 15, 2015

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

On the corner of 7th and Kansas Avenue

Amelia Earhart Weekend is coming up and because of the carnival being on Main Street, the Atchison Farmers’ Market will be located on the corner of 7th and Kansas Avenue, across from the Post Office.

Rachel Lanter will be at the Market this Wednesday with “Eating the Rainbow”. Kids (and adults) will be able to see how produce floats (bouncy), identify seeds and the plants they produce, and taste a variety of vegetables. Such a fun activity.

More peppers, green beans, cabbage, and much more will be available on Wednesday for your middle of the week needs.

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.
