2018 California (BAE) Farmer's Market is OPEN this Saturday, 21 April, 9 am - 1 pm (UNTIL 17 NOV.)

Posted 5/18/2018 6:14pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

YES! We WILL be at market tomorrow! We will have plenty of fresh arugula, crisp carrots, kale, salad mix, spinach and more!  It would so lift our soggy, muddy, damp (you get the idea) spirits to see your lovely faces at the market.  You are the reason we grow and we very much appreciate your support.  So, come on down to the market to buy your local, certified organic veggies for the week and be seen in your fancy raincoats, galoshes and umbrellas. As the Irish would say, it will be a grand soft day with a bit of spitting tomorrow. 

What we'll have at market tomorrow (photos below):

- Strawberries (very limited supply)!

- Arugula (Back!):  The spicy green you crave!  Try as a bed to grilled salmon or sprinkled on pizza as soon as it comes out of the oven. Yum!

- Certified Organic Transplants for Sale:  Basil and varieties of tomatoes.

- Carrots:  Fresh, aromatic and crisp carrots. Wonderful roasted, steamed, or sauteed with a little butter. Wonderful juiced! Adds a natural sweet flavor and essential nutrients.

- Curly Kale: This is the kale you are most familiar with that you can use in soups or simply sauteed. Also very 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 alternative to the traditional curly kale. It makes great kale chips and salads. 

- Radishes:  Beautiful, crisp and tasty! Of course great on a salad, but try eating them with a little salt and butter, as they do in France, Germany and Eastern European as an appetizer. It may sound unusual, but the flavors really compliment each other.

- Salad Mix:  We have lots of salad mix! Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oak leafs. 

- 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; add them towards the end of cooking your dish.

- Spinach:  We have lots of spinach! Freshly harvested, tasty, perfect-sized spinach that is ready to eat as a salad, steamed, sauteed, or juiced. 

- Sweet Potatoes, Covington:  We have your favorite orange sweet potatoes. So, easy to bake whole or slice and roast as sweet potato fries. Just slice 1/4 inch thick, toss with a little olive oil, roast in oven at 350 degrees for 15 mins, flip the slices and roast for about 5 mins more, sprinkle course salt (and pepper, if you like). That's it!  You have a guilt-free, sweet and so-good-for-you side dish for lunch/dinner or serve with eggs at breakfast!

We take cash, 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.
