Posted 9/26/2014 6:37pm by David Paulk.
Dear Market Customers!
Wow, what a beautiful fall day!  Going to be even better tomorrow.  The fall season veggies are coming in really strong and are delicious.  
What we'll have this Saturday:
- Spinach (New!): freshsweet, tasty green; great sauteed, steamed or in salad!
- Sweet Potatoes (New!): It's that time of year again, sweet potato season! They're wonderful baked, fried, roasted; for lunch, dinner and even breakfast!
- Radishes (New!): back from their summer vacation are those sweet, crisp, slightly spicy, colorful treats. (limited)
- Beets (New!): sweet, red and Italian Chioggia beets. (limited)
- Sorrel (New!): distinctive, citrusy herb/green that is wonderful with fish, in salads, and soups. (limited)
- Saute/Braising Mix (Back!): mix of delicious, young kales and asian mustard greens. Easy to saute or lightly braise. Great as a tasty, healthy side dish. 
- Sweet Dumpling, Winter Squash (New!):  sweet side dish for dinner or lunch; perfect serving for two people. Easy, just ask Jen. 
- Fresh Ginger: Fresh from the ground, not cured. Just beautiful, and has the most intoxicating fresh, aroma. If you've never tried fresh ginger, you've got to try it out. We have much more this week.
- Cilantro:  This is the first of this season's fresh, aromatic herb! We have lots more this week.
- Cabbage: Beautiful, delicious, personal-sized, but hefty, tight heads. 
- 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 and Bibb (back!) delicious options to suit your salad needs. If you've never tried sweet, soft bibb salad, you are missing out. It's particularly good for wraps. 
- Summer Squash: Zephyr and Patty Pan squash are sweet/nutty alternatives to zucchini and crooked neck squash. (limited, last harvest for 2014)
- 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. 
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. (Last crop for 2014 - 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! High in antioxidants.
- German Butterball Potatoes: A delicious, waxy potato that is excellent baked, roasted, mashed, or fried. Similar to yukon gold.
- 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.
Small Onion Mix: 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 color to any dish.
- Cippolini Onions - classic Italian sweet onion.  They happen to be perfect with Kale and Collard greens.  
- 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.
