A Cooler Day at the Market

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, July 26, 2017

2:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Enjoy a mid-week trip to the Atchison Farmers’ Market.  Our farmer/vendors are caring for their gardens to keep the vegetables going – watering where possible. There is still a lot to harvest, including a variety of fruit.

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. Also, just two more market days to sign up for the August Bundle Give Away!

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.
