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

Posted 8/22/2014 3:34pm by David Paulk.
Dear Market Customers!
 
Should be a nice, cool (70's) day tomorrow, with only a slight chance of rain, but that won't keep us from bringing you fresh, organic vegetables.  We'll be at the market rain or shine and hope to see you there too!
 
What we'll have this Saturday:
 
- Green Beans (Back!):  there's nothing else like freshly harvested snap green beans, with or without the bacon!
- Spaghetti Squash: the tasty, squash that can be used as pasta with your fresh tomato sauce, and makes a wonderful squash casseroles. See our Website for recipes.
Red Bell Peppers: Large, shiny, crisp bells.  Perfect for grilling, stuffing and stir fry.  Great on salad too.
- Oranos Sweet Peppers:  Crunchy, sweet, great raw or cooked.
- Jimmy Nardello Sweet Italian Frying Peppers: Jimmy Nardello brought these beautiful, sweet red peppers to the U.S. from Italy. They get sweeter as you cook them!  Delicious on Italian sandwiches, pizza, or vegetable saute.
Red Slicing Tomatoes, 2nd's: For canning and freezing whole or cooking down into sauce. Just ask Jen...It's easy. 25 lb box for $20! See our Website for canning/freezing recipes.
Red Slicing Tomatoes, 1st's: We have LOTS of great, red tomatoes that are equally good on sandwiches, as they are for canning and making sauces.
 Heirloom Tomatoes: Several colorful, flavorful varieties from which to choose. Some say they're "ugly", but ugly equals tasty.
- Green Zebra Tomatoes:  The green striped tomato that is ripe and tangy, wonderful on sandwiches and great in salsa!
- Golden Tomatoes: Sweet flavor, less acid than most reds.
Cherry Tomatoes: Two sweet, tangy varieties, one gold and one red. Great on salads or as a healthy snack (instead of candy or chips).
- Arugula:  For all you arugula lovers; we have plenty of what you crave. 
- Lettuce, Romaine and Summer Crisp: Two delicious options to suit your salad needs.
- 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.
- Jalapeno Peppers:  Time for that homemade salsa!
- Fish Peppers: The fruity, hot pepper with a regional history. Brought to Baltimore by slaves, and used by regional chefs to make hot sauce for fish and shellfish. It's about cayenne hot.
- 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.
