The Taste of Summer at the Wednesday Market

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, August 17, 2016

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

What do you think about for a summer meal?  Watermelon, corn on the cob, grilled meat?  We have it all at the Market.  Plus other mid to late summer vegetables, baked goods, jams and jellies, and more.

Coming this Saturday, another meat vendor with natural raised chicken and lamb!

Register with Lynn Hoffman, the market manager, for the September  3 Bundle Give Away.   It will be given away the same day as our Sweetness of Autumn festival.  Remember the Market continues through the last Saturday in October.

If you have a gift certificate from the Health Clinic, please let the vendor write in their name and the amount you spent at their booth before taking it to the next vendor.  When you have spent the full amount on the gift certificate, leave it with the last vendor from whom you made a purchase.

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 may still be some coupon packs available for those who qualify at the Salvation Army or the Area Agency on Aging.
