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

Posted 5/26/2017 1:39pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Friends,

The weather continues to keep us on our toes!  We had quite a violent rain/hail storm event on our farm yesterday afternoon!  Hail is a farmer's worst nightmare, but we think our healthy, young veggies will recover. We will have some Romaine lettuce with a little cosmetic damage from the hail, but otherwise looks and tastes great!  

At market tomorrow, we will have pleasant temperatures in the upper 60's/low 70's AND NO RAIN until after the market.  So, please pay us and our other wonderful vendors a visit at the market tomorrow!  It's a win-win....Support your local farms and get fresh, tasty organic produce for your Memorial Day Weekend cookouts! See Photos of the Week below!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Summer Squash, Yellow and Zucchini (NEW!):  The first summer squash of the season!  Perfect for your Memorial Day grilling! 

- Beets, Red, Chioggia and Golden (NEW!):  These are probably the most beautiful beets we've ever grown.  Conditions have been just right for them. Plus, they taste amazing! Three sweet beets to choose from:  traditional Red, Italian Chioggia and the beautiful golden.  All are great served boiled or roasted. Peel your beets, cut into thick slices and coat with a little olive oil and grill over indirect heat OR cut your beet in half and wrap in foil and roast over the coals. Once cool just rub off the skin with a paper towel. Sooo good with goat cheese and walnuts sprinkled on top or add all of the above to a bed of lettuce!  Deelish!

- Tomato Plants (NEW!):  We will have our xtra heirloom (German Johnson) and cherry (Sungold) organic tomato plants for sale at market!

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale.  Simply sautee some sweet red onions first and then add the chopped leaves, along with the the sweet, crunchy stems!  Makes a great side dish!

- Garlic Scapes:  Try these delicious, garlicky green shoots sautéed with scrambled eggs, veggies or as a pesto!  We'll have copies of the pesto recipe at the market and on our Web site:  www.sassafrascreekfarm.com 

- 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 for your Memorial Day weekend salads.

- Red Onions:  Freshly harvested sweet red onions that are so versatile and great in any dish. Delicious roasted on the grill over indirect heat.

- 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. 

- Hakurei Turnips: delicious raw, roasted or sauteed!  And don't forget the Turnip Greens, a very Southern delicacy!  Simply sautee the greens with some sweet red onions or add a little crumbled bacon! Yum!!

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.
