Atchison Farmers’ Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, June 8, 2016
2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Were you at the Market last Saturday? It was a great day! Music all morning on the beautifully redone Farmers’ Market Event Place. The Atchison Leadership Class chose a wonder project and did a great job! There was quite an audience the entire time. Plus, we had Juneteenth, and two food demos! A lot going on. We hope you enjoyed it.
Eegister for the July 2nd Market Bundle Give Away. Lynn Hoffman, the market manager, has registration forms.
Remember that you can use your credit, debit or SNAP (vision) card at the Market Manager’s stand. She will give you tokens to use as cash at the vendor stands. We have Atchison Farmers’ Market in the amount of $10 that you can give as gifts and use at the Market. We also accept Chamber of Commerce gift cards.
