There is a feeling in the air that is different from summer.  The colors of fall are also different.  Gardens are still going strong.  Get your mid-week needs at the market.

See Lynn Hoffman, market manager, to register for the final Bundle Give Away that will take place on the first Saturday of October.  Remember the Market continues through the last Saturday in October.

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.
