Fresh, Friendly, Local
Market E-Newsletter, Wednesday, September 6, 2017
2:30 – 5:30 p.m.
The Wednesday market, 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., will continue to offer fresh, locally grown late summer and fall vegetables and fruit to its customers until the last Saturday in October. Come and enjoy the beautiful weather while shopping.
Our last festival “The Zucchini 500” will be Saturday, September 9th. Kids between 4 and 14 can sign up at our Market Manager’s stall or email email@example.com. We need your name, age, and phone number. Deadline for sign-up: Wednesday, September 6.
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.
