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

Posted 7/4/2014 4:22pm by David Paulk.
Hello Market Customers!
Happy 4th of July! To celebrate our nation's independence we've harvested red, white, and blue potatoes for your patriotic potato salad. The 4th turned out to be a beautiful day and Saturday should be even better.
For this Saturday we'll be offering:     
- Garlic (New!): Yes, we have freshly cured garlic that is so fragrant and easy to mince, and delicious in many dishes.
- Blue Potatoes (New!): Oblong tubers with purple skin and flesh that remains firm and moist after cooking. For chips, salads, roasting, and even microwaving, they can't be beat! 
- German Butterball Potatoes (New!): a delicious, waxy potato that is excellent baked, roasted, mashed, or fried.
- Oranos (New!): sweet, crunchy, great raw and cooked.
- Sungold Cherry Tomatoes: sweet, tangy, and orange.
- Red Slicing Tomatoes: wonderful on sandwiches, in salads, and well, everything.
- Green Beans:  Fresh, just-picked from our high tunnel.  What better way to enjoy a summer meal than with fresh green beans. 
- Arugula:  The spicy green you demand.
- Lettuce, Romaine, Red Leaf, Bibb and Summer Crisp: four delicious options to suit your salad needs.
- Mountain Rose Potatoes: There's nothing else like the freshness and flavor of new red potatoes. These blush-colored potatoes make a pretty, tasty potato salad.
- 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 caramelized.
Red Onions: Red onions that are great raw, grilled or caramelized.
- 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.
- Patty Pan Summer Squash: You'll love this slightly nutty, sweet squash.
- Scallions (back!): fresh onion flavor for your salads and veggie saute.
