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

Posted 6/10/2016 5:12pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Friends!

 It's going to be a hot one on Saturday, so get your crisp, cool lettuce and salad mix, and other wonderful summer veggies while they last!  I guess summer has finally decided to arrive. We look forward to seeing you, your family and friends tomorrow!

Please check out below what we'll have at market!

- Salad Mix (back!):  Yes, our popular, ready-to-eat, sweet, crunchy salad mix is back!

- Summer Squash (New):  The season is finally here and we have 3 sweet varieties for you to try, including a yellow, zucchini and zephyr.

- Yellow Onions (New):  Great staples for any kitchen.  Tasty onions for grilling, sauteeing, burgers and onion rings!

- Golden Beets (New):  If you've never tried golden beets, now's your chance.  They are sweet like other beets, but have their own unique, delicious flavor.  Try golden or any beets grilled with over a bed of arugula, with goat cheese and walnuts....amazing!

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

- Basil Plants: Essential, fragrant basil. Plant now and it will be ready in time for tomato season.

- Beets, Chioggia & Red: We have sweet beets that are just beautiful and tasty. Try wrapped in foil and roasted on the grill...yum!

- Spring Carrots: It's time for fresh,spring crunchy bunches of carrots with the bugs bunny greens that kids and adults both like.

- 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.

- Cucumbers:  The first crop of two sweet types of fresh crisp cukes to choose from for your salads, a traditional and an asian variety (similar to English cukes), both sweet, small seeds and tasty. Limited quantities.

Garlic scapes:  Are the curly, green shoots that the garlic plant sends up in the Spring. They've got a mild, grassy, green garlic flavor. They don't have to be cooked, but if you do, you should cook them lightly in a quick stir-fry, for example. They also make the best pesto! We have the recipe on our Web site and we'll have copies to hand out at the market. Sold in bunches.

- Green Beans:  It's the first flush of tasty green beans (limited quantity).

- 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

- Lettuce:  Fresh red leaf, crunchy romaine and summer crisp lettuce. Enjoy a cool, crisp salad now that it's heating up.

- Sweet Red Onions :  Freshly harvested, slightly sweet, rosy red onions. Staples of any kitchen. Try grilling (low to medium flame)!

-  Hakurei Turnips (Topped): White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads or simply sauteed or steamed.

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, and eggs. 

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