Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, July 9, 2016

8 a.m. to 12 noon
“Man v. Grill”  – a great, fun event at the Market this Saturday!  Three serious grillers will compete between 9 and 11 a.m.  They will be using beef and vegetables from market vendors.  You will get to try small samples and vote on who is the “Iron Grilling Chef” of the Atchison Farmers’ Market.  Live broadcast on KAIR radio!

We will have a lot of vendors again at the Market – vegetables, coffees, pies, breads, desserts. fruit, jams, etc. etc.  Lots to choose from and lots to enjoy.  Ask your farmer/vendor about their farm, how they grow or raise their products, and if they have any favorite recipes.  (They will also ask you how you use their products!)

You can register for the August Bundle-Give-Away at Lynn Hoffman’s stand.

Remember that you can use your credit, debit or SNAP (vision) card at the Market..  You will receive tokens to use as cash at the vendor stands.  We also accept Chamber of Commerce gift cards and qualified vendors accept Kansas Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupon.  KSFMNP booklets are still available at the Atchison Salvation Army and Northeast Kansas Area Agency on Aging.
