BAE Farmer's Market is OPEN - Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm (UNTIL 18 NOV.)

Posted 5/19/2017 7:21pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Friends,

It will be a warm, sunny day at market. A considerable contrast from the last market!  The weather has been so confusing lately -- cold and wet, then hot, then cold, hot,...our plants are not sure what to do!  But they and we have persevered and will offer a beautiful display of colorful, fresh, nutritious organic vegetables for you.  We still have some strawberries, maybe not quite as many as last week, but we have some new items too!

Please check out "What we'll have at market tomorrow":

- Strawberries (Still have, but not as much):  We have fresh-picked, red, sweet, organic strawberries for you to enjoy. These are the first flush of the season and are in limited quantity.  See photo below.

- Red Onions (New!):  Freshly harvested sweet red onions that are so versatile and great in any dish.

- Arugula (BAAaaack!):  For you arugula addicts, we've got that fresh, spicy veggie you literally crave. :-)

- Garlic Scapes (New!):  Try these delicious, garlicky green shoots sautéed with sscrambled eggs, veggies or as a pesto!  Ask at the market!

- Spring Carrots:  Fresh, aromatic and crisp carrots. Wonderful lightly roasted, steamed, or sauteed with a little butter. Also tasty grated into salads for fresh carrot flavor, color and nutrients.

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale, and you can eat the sweet, crunchy stems!

- Curly Kale: This is the kale you are most familiar with that you can use in soups or simply sauteed. Also really easy to use in a kale salad.  Just remove stems, cut/tear into bite size pieces, massage with a little olive oil, and then add your favorite dressing.  It's that simple.

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

- Lettuce, Bibb & Romaine:  It's the perfect time of year to enjoy so delicious, buttery bibb lettuce that is perfect for making a delicate spring salad or to use in wraps. It is also a great time to enjoy fresh, crisp romaine lettuce in a caesar salad.

- Radishes, French Breakfast:  Sure you could eat these for breakfast, but frankly they are good anytime. These are half red and white, tasty crisp radishes.  See photo below.

- Radishes, Red:  Beautiful, deep red and tasty. Of course great on a salad or 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.

- Spring Salad Mix:  Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oakleafs. 

- 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.

- Hakurei Turnips: delicious raw or cooked. And don't forget the greens.

Like last year, 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). We've missed you and hope that you are all doing well.
