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

Posted 9/7/2018 8:19am by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have some new veggies for you to enjoy as well as all of your favorites of summer.  Swing by and pick up your fresh, tasty and nutritious vegetables for you and your family for the week. Fresher, better tasting and more varieties than what you'll find in any grocery store!  Treat yourself to healthy, organic, delicious veggies, you're worth it!  Plus, we just love seeing and talking with you too.  See the list below for what's at market tomorrow.

We are getting near the end of the tomato season. Now's the time to make sauce, can or freeze tomatoes for the winter!  We have Canning/Freezing Tomato Boxes (20-lb) of certified organic tomatoes for just $20! It's very easy to either can or freeze tomatoes whole or cook them down into sauce, and then use sauce fresh, freeze or can. Please check out easy recipes at Canning & Freezing Tomatoes Made Simple and Homemade Fresh Tomato Sauce.

To RESERVE a canning tomato box, please email us at   sassafrascreekfarm@gmail.com, and provide NameNumber of BoxesPhone Number and time you will pick up at market. 

We are so happy to be your farmer and grow for you!  Thank you for supporting our farm!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Zucchini (Back!):  Traditional, but always delicious zucchini. Enjoy this taste of summer before cooler temperatures settle in (hard to imagine right now, I know.)

- Striped Flaminio Zucchini (New!):  Try this tasty, slightly nutty new variety of Zucchini we are trying out. It's striped and as the Italians would say it has a "costata" appearance. We love it! 

- Beets (New!):  Delicious on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and a drizzle of raspberry-walnut dressing.  Either roast with skin on and then rub off skins once cool, or peel, slice and boil until fork tender.  Serve warm with a little butter or cool on a salad.

- 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!

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

- 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. 

- Sweet Red & Yellow Bell Peppers:  LARGE bells...perfect for the grill!

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

- Shishito Appetizer 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 stem). What a nice treat to enjoy with friends on a weekend afternoon, served with a cold glass of beer or dry white wine. 

- Potatoes, Mt. Rose, Blue, Fingerling, Carola & Desiree:  Five delicious varieties with different flavors and cooking qualities. Cut in quarters, 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 a tasty, easy, nutritious side dish.

- Canning Tomatoes (see details at top of email)

- Tomatoes, Heritage!:  We have 3 types of heritage tomatoes!  One looks and tastes like Cherokee Purple, the other is gold and red in color and sweeeet, and we have tangy Green Zebras!  Wonderful on a BLT or tomato sandwich or simply sliced on a plate and drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. Yummm.

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers!:  Plus, we have many red, delicious traditional slicer tomatoes!

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

We take cash, checks, credit, debit and SNAP and eWIC cards, and 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).
