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

Posted 8/29/2014 6:46pm by David Paulk.
Dear Market Customers!
 
Well, we've had some hot days this week, but the nights have been cool. It's that time of year when the summer crops are converging on the start of the fall crops, which is why we're able to have tomatoes and watermelon at the same time that we now have a delicious saute mix of baby brassica greens (see below!).
 
What we'll have this Saturday:
 
- Baby Saute Mix (New!): A flavorful mix of baby kales and asian mustards ("brassicas") that are as delicious raw in a salad as they are sauteed. 
- Japanese Ice Box Watermelon (Back!): Personal-sized sweet, crisp, red watermelon. 
- Summer Squash (Back!): Zephyr and Patty Pan squash are back, but in limited supply, as this is the first crop off of a new planting.
- Arugula:  For all you arugula lovers; we have plenty of what you crave. 
- Green Beans:  there's nothing else like freshly harvested snap green beans, with or without the bacon; (limited)
- 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 orange peppers that are 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, 1st's: We have great, red tomatoes that are equally good on sandwiches, as they are for canning and making sauces.
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.
 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: Sweet and tangy golden orange treats. Great on salads or as a healthy snack (instead of candy or chips).
- 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.
- 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.
