Rock and Roll at the Market this Saturday

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, June 18, 2016

8 a.m. to 12 noon

“Rock and Roll” this Saturday with “Elvis” Garry Meyer at the Farmers’ Market.  Market music puts rhythm in our steps as we walk around the market and visit with vendors and friends.

There will be even more locally raised vegetables (new potatoes and fresh herbs) and a second vendor having pies!  Our coffee vendors and one bakery vendor will have cold drinks to refresh you.

Lynn Hoffman, the Market Manager, has registration forms.  You can register for the July 2 Give Away now.  She also has Atchison Farmers’ Market $10 gift cards for a great Father’s Day surprise.

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 also accept Chamber of Commerce gift cards.  There are a few Kansas Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupon booklets still available for those who qualify at the Salvation Army or the Area Agency on Aging.

Recipe of the Week

There are so many types of cabbage – green, red, napa, Savoy.  Right now at the market, our vendors have heads of green cabbage.  Here is a recipe you make ahead of time so the flavors can “marry”.

Cabbage Salad (from AllRecipes)

  • 1 small head green cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices bacon
  • Add all ingredients to list


Prep, 10 minutes; Cook, 10 minutes, Ready in: 4 hours and 20 minutes

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrot, green pepper and onion. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and salt. Pour over the cabbage mixture, and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. Place the bacon in a large deep skillet. Cook over medium heat until evenly browned, turning occasionally. Drain, cool and crumble. Toss crumbled bacon with salad just before serving.
