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

Posted 10/17/2014 6:08pm by David Paulk.
Dear Market Customers,  
Big News!!!
The BAE Farmer's Market will remain OPEN through November. This is a change. In the past, the market has ended in October. In response to demand, the market farmers collectively decided to sell through November. Hours remain the same; 9am - 1 pm. Expect to see Sassafras Creek Organic Farm, Porpoise Creek Farm, Monnett Farm and Swamp Fox Farm. The bakers are also planning to remain open. 

is shaping up to be a beautiful fall day and we'll be ready with our new (and improved) display.  What we'll have this Saturday:
- Carrots:  fresh, crisp and sweet!
- Spinach (back!):  very popular green; sweet, fresh; delicious raw or cooked in many dishes.
- Hakurei Turnips:  snow white, crisp and sweet. Great raw or cooked, and don’t forget the delicious turnip greens.
- Kale, Lacinato (a.k.a., Dinosaur or Tuscan) - delicious sauteed/lightly braised, added to soups, in salads. and as crispy chips. Preferred by chefs.
- Rainbow Chard: savory, tasty green that is wonderful simply sauteed in a little olive oil, with salt and pepper. 
- Sweet Potatoes: It's that time of year again, sweet potato season! They're wonderful baked, fried, roasted; for lunch, dinner and even breakfast! We sold out pretty quick last week and so have lots more this week!
- Radishes: back from their summer vacation are those sweet, crisp, slightly spicy, colorful treats.
- Saute/Braising Mix: mix of delicious, young kales and asian mustard greens. Easy to saute or lightly braise. Great as a tasty, healthy side dish or raw mixed with salad greens or on a sandwich for some spice. 
Cabbage: Beautiful, delicious, personal-sized, but hefty, tight heads. 
- Collard Greens - Tender, with a slight bite; delicious lightly sauteed/lightly braised. Stems add a nice crunch. Of course, perfect with just a little bacon. These ain't your Granny's greens.  
- Lettuce, Romaine, Bibb and Red Leaf: 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.
- Baby Arugula:  For all you arugula lovers; we have plenty of what you crave, and it is really at peak flavor and size.
- Fresh Ginger: Fresh from the ground, not cured. Just beautiful, and has the most intoxicating fresh, spicy aroma. If you've never tried fresh ginger, you've got to try it out. Of course you can use ginger in stir fry, but it is wonderful in soups, ginger tea, ginger soda, and candied.
- Sorrel: distinctive, citrusy herb/green that is wonderful with fish, in salads, and soups.
- Cilantro:  We have plenty of your favorite, fresh aromatic herb! 
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.
- Jalapeno Peppers:  Great in fall chilis and stews, or jalapeno poppers!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
