BAE Farmer's Market - Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm

Posted 6/27/2014 4:39pm by David Paulk.
Hello Market Customers!
We have BIG NEWS (II):  We are pleased to announce that local, pasture-raised poultry will be available from Swamp Fox Farm at the BAE Farmer's Market starting this Saturday.  Details below photo of the week.
Another busy week on the farm, getting all the sweet potatoes planted, harvesting garlic and shallots and keeping all the vegetables happy as we move through Summer Solstice.   
For this Saturday we'll be offering:     
- Green Beans (New!):  Fresh, just-picked from our high tunnel.  What better way to enjoy a summer meal than with fresh green beans. 
- Patty Pan Summer Squash (New!): You'll love this slightly nutty, sweet squash.
- Arugula (Back!):  The spicy green you demand.
- Mountain Rose Potatoes: There's nothing else like the freshness and flavor of new red potatoes.
- Super Star Sweet OnionsBig, very white, crisp sweet onions that are great for fresh eating in salads and on burgers, as well as sauteed or carmelized.
- Green Bell Peppers: Large, shiny, crisp bells. Perfect for grilling, stuffing and stir fry.
- Basil (Genovese & Thai):  The aromatic herb that says "summer is here." 
- Fennel: aromatic anise flavor; adds nice crunchy, slightly sweet flavor to salads, particularly good with oranges, fish, and try roasted with chicken.
- Parsley:  fresh, aromatic, wonderful in salads and essential in tabouleh.
Cucumbers:  really great cukes; sweet and crunchy; great in all your summer salads.
- Summer Squash, Zephyr:  One of our favorite summer squashes - has a delicious mild, nutty, sweet flavor.  We pick them small so flavor is at its peak.
- Beets, three varieties:  Chioggia, Golden, Red:  Prized for their sweet flavor. Delicious baked, boiled or steamed. And don't forget about the greens, which are tasty as a spinach substitute.
Red Onions: Red onions that are great raw, grilled or caramelized.
- Summer Crisp Lettuce (New!)
- Romaine Lettuce: Big, fresh heads that add that crunch we like in salads.
- Red Leaf Lettuce: Loose leaf, delicate, mild flavor that mixes well with Romaine
- Rainbow Chard:  Big, beautiful, colorful leaves; when sauteed in a little olive oil or butter make a simply delicious, savory side dish.

News!  Hello Sassafras Creek Farm Customers.  We are Swamp Fox Farm; a small family farm in Valley Lee, MD.  Starting this weekend we will be selling whole pasture raised chicken and eggs along with fresh produce every other weekend.  We raise our meat and laying chickens on GMO free feed that is locally sourced.  Our birds, both meat and laying chickens, are moved over our pastures for the duration of their lives granting them access to fresh grass, air and sunshine. Our produce is grown locally without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and harvested fresh. We are looking forward to contributing to the selection of  amazing food at the BAE market this summer and hope to see you at the market soon!
