2018 California (BAE) Farmer's Market is OPEN Saturday, 21 April, 9 am - 1 pm (UNTIL 17 NOV.)

Posted 4/27/2018 5:16pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Friends,

It was so great to see so many of you last week at the first market of the season!  It will be another lovely spring day at tomorrow's market and we have plenty of very fresh, organic veggies just for you! Photos below.

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

Arugula:  We have plenty of baby, spring arugula with a  mild kick.

- Carrots:  Fresh, aromatic and crisp carrots. Wonderful roasted, steamed, or sauteed with a little butter. Wonderful juiced! Adds a natural sweet flavor and essential nutrients.

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale, and you can eat the sweet, crunchy stems when sauteed! Try sauteed with golden raisins (or chopped sweet onion) and lightly toasted pine nuts.

- Curly Kale: This is the kale you are most familiar with that you can use in soups or simply sauteed. Also very easy to use in a kale salad.  Just remove stems, cut/tear into bite size pieces, massage with a little olive oil, and then add your favorite dressing.  It's that simple.

- Lacinato Kale:  Also known as "Dino" or "Tuscan" kale. Very tasty alternative to the traditional curly kale. It makes great kale chips and salads. 

- Radishes, Pink & French Breakfast:  Beautiful, crisp and tasty! Of course great on a salad, but try eating them with a little salt and butter, as they do in France, Germany and Eastern European as an appetizer. It may sound unusual, but the flavors really compliment each other.

- Salad Mix:  Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oakleafs. 

- Scallions: Mild green onions, perfect raw in salads or sprinkled on top of your stir fry, but don't cook too much. These are young, green, and delicate; add them towards the end of cooking your dish.

- Sweet Potatoes, Covington & Murasaki:  We have your favorite orange and purple (Japanese Murasaki) sweet potatoes. So, easy to bake whole or slice and roast as sweet potato fries. Just slice 1/4 inch thick, toss with a little olive oil, roast in oven at 350 degrees for 15 mins, flip the slices and roast for about 5 mins more, sprinkle course salt (and pepper, if you like). That's it!  You have a guilt-free, sweet and so good for you side dish for dinner/lunch or serve with eggs at breakfast!

- Hakurei Turnips:  White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads or simply sauteed or steamed, along with, of course, the tasty turnip greens.

We take cash, credit, debit and SNAP cards.

The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and baked goods. 

So, we hope to see you, your friends and family members on Saturday (BAE parking lot, 9am - 1pm). We've missed you and hope that you are all doing well.
