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

Posted 7/25/2014 5:09pm by David Paulk.
Hello Customers!
Well, the tomato tidal wave has really hit! We have lots of slicing red, heirlooms, green zebras and cherry tomatoes for your summer dishes...yum! So come to the market and swim with us in a sea of tangy, sweet summer fruit (tomatoes). Plus, the weather should be perfect.
For this Saturday we'll be offering:     
- La Ratte Fingerling Potatoes (New!):  so delicious, waxy potatoes that chefs ask for by name.
- Arugula:  For all you arugula lovers; we have what you crave.
Basil (Genovese & Thai):  The aromatic herb that says "summer is here", and goes so well with tomatoes.
- Green Beans:  What better way to enjoy a summer meal than with fresh green beans. 
Cucumbers:  really great cukes; sweet and crunchy; perfect in all your summer salads and for making quick, refrigerator pickles.
- Red Slicing Tomatoes: We have lots of great, red tomatoes that are equally good on sandwiches, as they are canning and making sauces.
- Heirloom Tomatoes: Several colorful, flavorful varieties from which to choose. Some say they are ugly, but ugly equals tasty.
- Green Zebra Tomatoes:  The green striped tomato that is ripe and tangy, wonderful on sandwiches and great in salsa!
- Cherry Tomatoes: Two sweet, tangy varieties, one gold and one red. Great on salads or as a healthy snack (instead of candy or chips).
- Shallots:  Delicate, unique onion flavor that makes so many dishes perfect. 
- Garlic: Yes, we have freshly cured garlic that is so fragrant and easy to mince, and essential to so many dishes.
- Blue Potatoes: 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: A delicious, waxy potato that is excellent baked, roasted, mashed, or fried.
- Mountain Rose Potatoes: These blush-colored potatoes make a pretty, tasty potato salad.
- Oranos Sweet Peppers: sweet, crunchy, great raw and cooked.
- Red Bell Peppers: Large, shiny, crisp bells. Perfect for grilling, stuffing and stir fry.
- Jalapeno Peppers:  Time for that homemade salsa!
- Lettuce, Summer Bibb, Romaine and Summer Crisp: Two delicious options to suit your salad needs.
- 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.
- 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: Great raw, grilled or caramelized.
- Parsley:  fresh, aromatic, wonderful in salads and essential in tabouleh.
