Can You Believe this Weather – in August?

Atchison  Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, August 2, 2017

2:30 – 5:30 p.m.

The Wednesday Farmers’ Market on Main Street will be a great time to get out, get some fresh (cool) air, and shop for fresh, local produce. Our farmer/vendors will have summer crops as well as the beginning of fall produce such as apples.  We will also have baked and other items available for you.

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.
