This Saturday, from 8:30 to 10 a.m., the Market will have its “Tooty Fruity Pancake Festival” featuring pancakes flipped by The Hardware Store and fruit toppings prepared and served by Janean Bowen and Susan Turnbull. Free will offerings will go to the Salvation Army food pantry. Come and bring the kids for an enjoyable morning at the Market.
Of course our vendors will be there will plenty of summer and fall vegetables, fruits, baked goods, honey, and plants from 8 a.m. until noon.
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 register for the September Bundle Give Away at her booth also.
If you are in favor of the Star Bond project providing funds to build a canopy over the Market area, let us know or contact the City Commissioners. This is a project that would not cost the City, but would use a portion of sales tax generated from that area. And . . . it would not only benefit the Market, but whatever other community organization that would like to use that area.
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.
