More and More Produce at the Wednesday Market

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, July 6, 2016

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

So you survived the 4th of July celebrations and you are out of everything.  Right?

There are more vendors at the Market this Wednesday – with a lot of choice fresh vegetables and baked goods.  When you buy from one of our farmers, be sure to ask them about how they grow their produce, recipes they like for the particular vegetable, and where their farm(s) are located.  They take a lot of time and much, much energy to bring their produce to the Market for your enjoyment.

Don’t forget to register for the August 6th 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 and Kansas Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupons.  There are still be some coupon packs available for those who qualify at the Salvation Army or the Area Agency on Aging.
