Wednesday Market in the Shade

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, July 20, 2016

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Summer has come with a vengeance.  But that doesn’t mean that your local farmers’ market has given up.  We are still growing and harvesting a lot of fruits (blackberries, peaches, and nectarines), vegetables (a great variety), and baking breads for your enjoyment.  Our vendors will be set up under the 5th Street viaduct on Wednesday.

Don’t forget to register for the August 6th Market Bundle Give Away.  Lynn Hoffman, the market manager, has registration forms.

Double your SNAP benefits ($1 to $25 per market day.)  Get your swiped amount in wooden coins for regular purchases and a matching amount in silver coins to use on local, fresh fruit and vegetables!

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 gift cards 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.
