Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, October 28, 2017

8 a.m. – noon

Grab you coat (and gloves) and come down to the Farmers’ Market this Saturday between 8 a.m. and noon.  Our farmers/vendors will have a bountiful display of produce, baked goods, jams, jellies, dog treats, and coffee available for you to enjoy.   This is the final, official market day of the 2017 season!

Are you ready for Halloween?  There will also be a 9’ black and red flying dragon at the Market!!!

Remember, if you have Kansas Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition coupons, this is the last day you can use them (deadline November 1st).

Elias Honey (Chuck Elias)  Elias Apiary Going Out of Business Sale

Due to injuries suffered in a vehicle accident last winter, I’m no longer able to physically operate my beekeeping operation on a scale large enough to continue selling at the Atchison Farmers’ Market. I will continue to sell honey from my farm located just south of Atchison at 18512 272 Road. Phone numbers 426-0143 and 367-0375. All honey sold at the Farmers’ Market during September and October will be offered at discounted prices. I’ll certainly miss interacting with the customers I’ve met at the Market.
