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

Posted 9/19/2014 3:45pm by David Paulk.
Dear Market Customers!
Here's an idea.  Come to the BAE Farmer's Market in the morning, then go to the St Mary's County Fair later in the day.  We can't think of a better way to show support for local agriculture and enjoy the tasty bounty of Southern Maryland.
What we'll have this Saturday:
- Fresh Ginger (New!): Yes, a number of you have been asking when will the ginger we ready? Well, now!  We are quite excited, since it is just beautiful, and has the most intoxicating fresh, aroma. See photo below.  If you've never tried fresh out of the ground (not cured) ginger, you've got to try it out.
- Cilantro (New!):  This is the first of this season's fresh, aromatic herb!
Small Onion Mix (New!): A pint sampler of our red, sweet and cippolini onions.  A great way try some onions you've never tried before, and add a mix of colors to any dish.
- Cabbage (New!): Beautiful, delicious, small, but hefty cabbages. 
- Kale, Lacinato (a.k.a., Dinosaur or Tuscan) - delicious sauteed/lightly braised, added to soups, in salads. and as crispy chips. Preferred by chefs.
- Collard Greens - Tender, delicious lightly sauteed/lightly braised.  These ain't your Granny's greens.  
- Lettuce, Romaine, Red Leaf, and a few Summer Crisp delicious options to suit your salad needs. 
- Summer Squash: Zephyr and Patty Pan squash are sweet/nutty alternatives to zucchini and crooked neck squash.
- Baby Arugula:  For all you arugula lovers; we have plenty of what you crave, and it is really at peak flavor and size.
- Green Beans:  there's nothing else like freshly harvested snap green beans, with or without the bacon. We have plenty this week!
Green & Red 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.
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.
- Cippolini Onions - classic Italian sweet onion.  They happen to be perfect with Kale and Collard greens.
