Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, June 28, 2017

2:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Wednesday will be the last market in June and your last chance to register for the July 1 Bundle Give Away. Did you know that you could win a bundle of goodies? On the first Saturday of the month, each vendor contributes one item – bread, tortillas, vegetables, etc. – to the Bundle Give Away – usually a $50 to $75 value. Register at the Market Manager’s table.

New items this week: locally grown, fresh apricots, peaches and Japanese eggplant and so much more at the June 28th market. Come see us for your mid-week produce!

The Vegetable Petting Zoo will also be back!

The Market Manager, Debbie Genova, (green and white striped tent) can swipe your credit, debit or SNAP cards. We participate in the Double Up Food Program and the Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. Buy your Farmers Market gift cards ($10) from Debbie and we accept Chamber of Commerce gift certificates.

You can support your Farmers’ Market by buying a Plant a Carrot sign to put in your yard and/or “I love my Farmers Market” bumper sticker.
