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

Posted 9/12/2014 6:17pm by David Paulk.
Dear Market Customers!
Fall is making its presence known...cooler temperatures means cool season veggies! I think we're all starting to crave greens and we have plenty of them! 
What we'll have this Saturday:
- Kale, Lacinato (a.k.a., "Dinosaur" or Tuscan)(New!) -  the kale that chefs prefer.   
- Collard Greens (New!) - Tender, delicious lightly sauteed/braised.  These ain't your Granny's greens.  
- Cippolini Onions (New!) - classic Italian sweet onion.  They happen to be perfect with Kale and Collard greens.  
- Lettuce, Romaine, Summer Crisp, Green Leaf & Red Leaf: Four delicious options to suit your salad needs. We have lots!
- Saute Mix: A flavorful mix of baby kales and asian mustards ("brassicas") that are as delicious sauteed in olive oil, with onions/garlic  (limited).
- Summer Squash: Zephyr and Patty Pan squash are sweet/nutty alternatives to zucchini and crooked neck squash.
- 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. We have plenty this week!
Green Bell Peppers: Large, shiny, crisp bells.  Perfect for grilling, stuffing and stir fry. 
- Oranos Sweet Peppers:  Crunchy, sweet orange peppers that are great raw or cooked.
Red Slicing Tomatoes: delicious, versatile tomato. (limited )
Heirloom Tomatoes: Several colorful, flavorful varieties from which to choose. Some say they're "ugly", but ugly equals tasty. (limited)
- 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, essential in tabouleh, some Italian sauces (e.g., spaghetti alla puttanesca) or chopped and sauteed with potatoes or any veggies.
