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

Posted 8/25/2017 6:43pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

It's a great day to pick up your summer veggies for your weekend cookout and the week's meals. We have plenty of veggies, but in particular we have a lot of CARROTS, GREEN BEANS, BEETS, CHERRY TOMATOES, POTATOES, and SHISHITO appetizer peppers! Don't forget to reserve one of our BOXES OF TOMATOES to freeze or can and add to your soups/stews or make sauce with in the winter. Don't put off to the last minute! And as always, the early birds are usually rewarded!

We have simple recipes on our Web page at www.sassafrascreekfarm/recipe to give you ideas on what to make using all of our produce for your meals this week!  

What we'll have at market:

- Carrots (Back!):  Yes, bunches of fresh carrots are back from their summer vacation and ready to flavor your salads and accompany your meats when grilling/roasting.

- Summer Squash, Zucchini and Zephyr (Back in limited quantity!):  We have a new planting of delicious summer squash that is just starting to produce. 

- Arugula:  For you arugula addicts, we've got plenty of that fresh, spicy green you literally crave. :-)  

- Beets:  Great either boiled or roasted, like a potato.  The perfect combination is beets with goat cheese and walnuts on a bed of arugula!

- Espelette Peppers: delicious spicy, slightly smoky, and sweet! Beautiful deep red peppers that are delicious cooked or dried and then ground into paprika powder. They hail from the Basque region of France and are primarily grown for a sweet, hot paprika. You can regulate the heat level by how many seeds you leave in.  If you leave all seeds in, it's about jalapeno hot. Great in salsa!  Freeze and use over the winter in chile!

- Garlic:  Fresh garlic is so aromatic and so easy to mince! Try some today!

- Green Beans:  tasty, crisp, fresh green beans! We have LOTS of green beans this market!

- Rolled Oats (Oatmeal):  We are selling rolled oats (oatmeal), from oats grown on our farm. They have a wonderful nutty flavor and are certified organic, like all of our produce! Cook them as you would Quaker oatmeal. 2:1 ratio of water to oats; cook for 5 mins or until desired consistency.

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

- Super Sweet Superstar Onions:  If you've been to our stand over the years, then you know these super sweet onions!  They are large, white and very similar to vidalia onions. They are sooo good raw on burgers, in salads, or sauteed until caramalized. Make sure you cook them on a med-low heat, because the sugars in them can burn if too hot.

- ORANOS Sweet Orange Peppers:  Bright orange, shiny and sweet. So, good raw or grilled!  

- Shishito Peppers:  Japanese appetizer peppers that are so delicious and easy to prepare. Just toss the whole pint of peppers into a skillet of olive oil, on medium heat; saute until they shrivel and char, just slightly. Drain peppers onto a paper towel and then plate up with a sprinkle of sea salt, served with an ice cold beer or dry white wine. Eat the whole pepper, except stem. Maybe 1 in 10 have some very mild heat.  Enjoy!

- Potatoes, Red, Blue, La Ratte Fingerling and German Butterball:  Four varieties of tasty irish potatoes.  The blue potatoes are blue inside and out, full of anti-oxidants, and great for making crispy fries or roasting.  German Butterballs are a creamy yellow/white and great for boiling, roasting or making mashed potates. Fingerlings are also a "waxy" potato, great for simply boiling or roasting. And we have our delicious Moutain Rose (red) potatoes, which are absolutely delicious and very versatile.

- Cherry Tomatoes:  We have your favorite orange and red cherry tomatoes.  They each have their own flavor some sweet and tangy and some sweet with less acid. 

- Green Zebra Tomatoes:  The green tangy heirloom tomato that you've been waiting for is here!  It's green, but ripe! Great mixed with red tomatoes for an attractive and tasty salsa! (limited quantity)

- Tomatoes, Red Heirloom and Red and Orange Slicers:  We have delicious German Johnson and Green Zebra heirloom and traditional, very tasty red and orange slicing tomatoes. 

- Canning Tomatoes:  20-lb boxes of certified organic tomatoes for just $20! What a deal! Reserve a box today for pick-up at market tomorrow. If you've never canned, no worries! You can always make sauce and freeze or just freeze them whole. You’ll find easy instructions at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipeTo RESERVE 1 or more boxes, please email us at sassafrascreekfarm@gmail.com, and provide your NameNumber of BoxesPhone Number, and approximate Time you will pick up at market (9am to 1pm). Note that if you haven't picked up your box by noon tomorrow, we will sell to another customer, UNLESS you let us know that you will be picking up after noon (market ends at 1pm). Thank you!

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).
