Atchison Farmers Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter for Wednesday, October 21, 2015
2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Have you visited with the farmer/vendors about what produce you like and what you might like to see at the Market? There is still time. The Market will be open this Wednesday and Saturday as well as next Wednesday. Our last “official” day will be Saturday, October 31st.
Lynn Hoffman, our market manager, can 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 $10 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.
Note: SNAP card users – please see Lynn Hoffman to complete a survey about your experience using Market Match (2x value per swipe). If you have used your card on this program this summer it is really important that you answer the anonymous survey. Thanks.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a date. We still have October 31 open for entertainment.
