Atchison Farmers’ Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, July 29, 2015
2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Can you believe that another month of summer is almost gone. But summer is definitely here. Heat plus humidity make it very hard to go outside and work in the gardens. But our vendors are persevering. Come to the Market on Wednesday to get fresh produce.
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!
