Last Market in September – One Month to Go!

Atchison Farmers Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Saturday, September 30, 2015

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Can you believe this is the last day of September!!! But still plenty of vegetables, fruit and other products from our friendly vendors. The market will continue through Saturday, October 31.

This is the last day to register for the October Bundle Give-Away. It will take place on Saturday, October 3. Lynn Hoffman, our market manager, has registration forms.

She 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.

If you know of any musicians, or groups (i.e. 4-H, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, or fundraisers for charity) who might like to come to our market, have them call Betty Fischer at 913 709 5050 ( to arrange a date. We still have a October 31 open for entertainment.
