Sweetness at the Wednesday Market

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, September 14, 2016

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

What a September so far – rain and the grass is still green.  Is this Kansas?  No matter.  It’s better than blazing heat!

The Market is still going strong.  In fact you will be able to buy HONEY this Wednesday!  A lot of people have been asking for it on Wednesdays, so Chuck Elias will be with us tomorrow.  Also, we will have plenty of vegetables, baked goods, and coffees.

You can swipe credit and debit cards at the Market Manager’s stand.  You can also use SNAP cards for double benefits ($1 to 25 each market day).  If you have Kansas Senior Farmers Market Program coupons bring them to the market.  We also accept AFM gift cards and Chamber of Commerce gift cards.  If you want to buy AFM gift cards, just ask Lynn Hoffman.

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.
