Atchison Farmers’ Market
Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, August 3, 2016
2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Can you believe August is here? Of course, we have had a taste of “August weather” already at various times during the summer. But your farmer/vendors have been persevering through the roller coaster of heat and cooler, no rain and rain and still producing a wide variety of crops for you to enjoy.
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 five coupon packs available for those who qualify at the Salvation Army.
