The Tomato – Corn Festival was great with so many people wandering through the Market, tasting several recipes and judging the salsa contest.

Come to the Market this Wednesday, August 5th from 2:30pm to 5:30pm to get mid-summer vegetables and your other mid-week needs.

SNAP (food stamp) users, double the amount you can purchase when you scan your card at the Market any market day.  If you scan for $5, you will get $10 of tokens; scan for $25, and get $50 of tokens. Janean Bowen, in Lynn Hoffman’s absense, can scan credit, debit, and SNAP cards.

Do you know of a musician or charity fund raiser group who would like to come to the market?  If so call Betty Fischer at 913 709 5050.
