Posted 7/13/2018 5:20pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have a lot of your favorite fresh, summer veggies tomorrow, including arugula, Asian cucumbers, sweet peppers and, of course, a variety of fresh tomatoes! We so appreciate that you take the time to come to our stand. We look forward to seeing and talking with you!  Thank you!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Oranos Peppers (New!):  Sweet, orange and crisp peppers. Great raw, sauteed or grilled!

- Canning Tomato Boxes (New!; limited quantity):  20 - 25 lb boxes of certified organic tomatoes for just $1/lb! To RESERVE a box, please email us at sassafrascreekfarm@gmail.com, and provide your NameNumber of BoxesPhone Number and time you will pick up

- Arugula:  We have your favorite spicy green! Wonderful as a bed for grilled salmon, drizzled with a sesame-ginger dressing or as a bed for roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts!

- Basil: Fresh, large bunches of aromatic basil! Wonderful sprinkled into sauteed vegetables, great on pizza, as pesto, and many more dishes.

- Beets, 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

- Cucumbers:  We have A lot of tasty, sweet, asian cucumbers. Similar to English cucumbers.  Sweet, thinned skinned and almost non-existent seeds.

- Fresh Carrots:  We have fresh, crisp, tasty carrots that are ready to be roasted or eaten raw on salads or with your favorite dips!

- Garlic:  We have fresh, large, delicious heads of garlic!  So fresh, they ooze aromatic garlic juice when you mince them. Heavenly!

- Lettuce (limited quantity):  Freshly-harvested lettuce from our farm directly to you!  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.

- Superstar Sweet Onions:  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. 

- Potatoes, Red, Blue, Fingerling and golden Carola:  Four delicious varieties with different flavors and cooking qualities from which to choose. Cut in half or in slices, toss with a little olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F until fork tender, longer if you want them to crisp up. Sprinkle with sea salt for tasty, easy side dish.

- Shishito Peppers:  First of the season shishito's. Delicious, green sauteing, appetizer  peppers from Japan! Just toss whole peppers in a hot pan with a little oil until blistered. Then serve sprinkled with sea salt. Eat peppers whole (except for stem). What a nice treat to enjoy with friends on a weekend afternoon, served with a cold glass of beer or dry white wine. 

- Summer Squash, Zucchini, Zephyr and Gold Acorn Nut (new!):  We have plenty of both kinds of summer squash. Limited quantity of the summer Gold Acorn Nut.  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!

- Tomatoes, Big Heritage & Red Slicers!:  We have two types of heritage tomatoes!  One is essentially identical to Cherokee Purple and the other is sweeeet!!

- Cherry Tomatoes, golden tangy Sungold and red Sweet Treat!

We take cash, credit, debit and SNAP cards, eWIC & FMNP coupons.

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).
