BAE Farmer's Market is OPEN - Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm (until 19 Nov)

Posted 5/6/2016 6:34pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Fans,

Spring is here and we have some really nice produce for you this Mother's Day weekend. Yes, that includes strawberries! Like all of our produce, they are certified organic.  We don't have an unlimited supply so you know the drill...early bird gets the worm. It's been a tough spring for strawberries with way too much rain, but the good news is that we shouldn't have rain tomorrow, finally.

At our stand look for:  

Strawberries (New):  early, sweet variety of strawberries.

- Butterhead Lettuce (New): Tender heads with superior flavoer and texture, blanched hearts and red-tinged leaves. (see photo at bottom of email)

Arugula:  We have plenty of baby, spring arugula with the spicy flavor you crave.

- Chard, Rainbow:  Beautiful, colorful, tasty and very healthy leaves! So good simply sauteed in a little olive oil and garlic. Try chopping up the crunchy, tasty stems and add them too.

- Beet Micro-Greens:  Tasty, tender, micro-beat greens. Wonderful added to your salad mix for some added color and nutrients. 

- Kale, Curly:  It can be sauteed, steamed, juiced, added to soups, baked as chips, and raw in kale salads. What a versatile and incredibly healthy vegetable!

- Kale, Lacinato:  Also known as "Dino" or "Tuscan" kale. Very tasty Kale alternative to the traditional curly kale. It makes great kale chips, among many delicious uses

- Kale, Dazzling BlueTry this new tasty and pretty variety of kale with blue, green leaves similar to lacinato kale, but with a bright pink rib. Prepare just as you would any other kale.

- Lettuce:  Fresh, crisp red leaf, butterhead, and romaine.

- Radishes, Lollipop & French Breakfast:  Beautiful and tasty mix of pink, red and white radish varieties. Try with a little butter and salt, which is how German and Eastern Europeans enjoy them. It may sound like an unusual combination, but they really compliment each other.

- Scallions: Mild green onions, perfect raw in salads or sprinkled on top of your stir fry, but don't cook too much. These are young, green, and delicate.

- Spinach:  Freshly harvested, tasty spinach that is ready to eat raw, steamed, sauteed, or juiced. 

- Hakurei Turnips:  White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads or simply sauteed or steamed, along with, of course, the tasty turnip greens.

Don't worry about having cash at our stand, since we take credit, debit and SNAP cards.

The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and baked goods. 

So, we hope to see you, your friends and family members on Saturday (BAE parking lot, 9am - 1pm).
