Last Saturday Market in July

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, July 30, 2016

8 a.m. to 12 noon

Come to the Atchison Farmers’ Market this Saturday morning – opening bell at 8 a.m. and running until noon.  Meet your friends for a relaxing shopping experience.  Our farmers and vendors are happy to serve you and, perhaps, introduce you to new vegetables.  We will have a lot of vendors again at the Market – fresh fruits, vegetables, pies, breads, desserts, honey, 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 may also ask you how you use their products!  It’s always fun to learn how others use vegetables and fruits.)

Last day to register for the August 6th Bundle-Give-Away at Lynn Hoffman’s stand.

Our market manager can swipe your SNAP card for double buying power.  We also accept Atchison Farmers’ Market gift cards and Chamber of Commerce gift cards.  Qualified vendors accept Kansas Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupon.  Some KSFMNP booklets may still available at the Atchison Salvation Army and Northeast Kansas Area Agency on Aging.
