Atchison Farmers’ Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, August 19, 2015
2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Mother Nature gave us a week without rain and we started getting cracks in the garden soil. To keep our produce going, we had to water, especially the squash, cucumbers and beans. But, it is worth it to be able to go out in the garden and pick fresh produce available for our Atchison friends. It is also a time when we take our “extra” produce and preserve it (pickles, relishes, jams and jellies) to bring a little “summer” during the cold, winter months.
Come to the Market this Wednesday, August 19th from 2:30pm to 5:30pm to get mid-summer vegetables and your other mid-week needs. Don’t forget to register for the September 5 Market Bundle Give Away. Lynn Hoffman can help you. She also has cards with information about vegetables and recipes for you to try.
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. Lynn Hoffman can scan credit, debit, and SNAP cards.
