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

Posted 6/22/2018 4:26pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

 It's officially summer with Summer solstice happening this past Thursday -  the longest day of the year. With summer heat, comes summer veggies that we all love so much.  The big news for this market is we have sweet corn, garlic and superstar onions! We also have many more delicious and healthy veggies listed below for you to enjoy. A few nice surprises for the early birds. Please see photos below and recipes on our Web site.  Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Sweet Corn (New!):  Fresh, certified organic, bi-color, super sweet corn!

- Garlic (New!):  The scapes are gone, but now we have fresh, large, delicious heads of garlic!

- Superstar Sweet Onions (New!): Delicious, freshly-harvested sweet onions, like Vidalia onions! Wonderful raw or cooked. These are the amazingly sweet onions you've enjoyed from our stand for years now. 

- Arugula (Back!):  Your favorite spicy green is back!

- Cucumbers (New!):  Tasty, sweet, asian cucumbers. Similar to English cucumbers.

- Green Beans:  We have more tasty green beans for your spring salads. Think Salad Nicoise with green leaf/romaine, new red potatoes, beets, carrots, green beans and fresh market eggs, hard boiled. Wow!

- Beets, Golden, Chioggia & Red:  Three kinds of sweet beets, each with their own slightly different flavor. Wonderful baked, roasted, or simply peeled, sliced, boiled and served warm with butter or cool on a salad. Try pickling! Go to www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe

- Fresh Carrots:  We have a new planting of carrots that have sized up and are crisp, tasty and ready to be roasted or eaten raw on salads or with your favorite dips!

- 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. 

- Romaine Lettuce:  Freshly harvested from our farm directly to you!  There's nothing else like a crisp head of romaine for your salads or on the grill.

- Green Leaf Lettuce:  Fresh, spring green leaf lettuce. Perfect for your salads and burgers! See easy homemade salad dressing recipes at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe . 

- Onions, Red:  Freshly-harvested sweet red onions. Delicious raw on a burger or sautéed in any dish.

- New Red Potatoes:  These are freshly-harvested red potatoes. If you've never tasted fresh potatoes, now is your chance! The flavor is wonderful!  Try them boiled or roasted, just until fork tender, with our green beans!

- Shallots: Yes, shallots fresh, straight from the earth to you. Okay, we did wash them. They are sweet and amazing tasting. Try sauteed with our green beans, kale, or chard.

- Summer Squash, Zucchini & Zephyr:  We have plenty of both kinds of summer squash.  Delicious grilled or sauteed with our red or white onions, as a side dish to accompany steak, chicken or pork!

- 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!

- Organic Pepper & Tomato Plants for sale!

We take cash, credit, debit and SNAP cards.

The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, baked goods and booze. 

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