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

Posted 9/21/2018 3:43pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

How about coming by the farmers market tomorrow and supporting your local farmers before you go to the County Agricultural Fair!  Bring your friends and family to stock up on fresh, certified organic veggies for the week!  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:

- Fresh Baby Ginger (New!): what you've all been asking for is finally here!  Freshly-harvest ginger has no tough skin.  It is baby pink and crisp-tender. It doesn't need to be peeled before grating. Naturally sweet and aromatic. Simply grate and add to any vegetable, fish, fruit dish.  Many uses. Check out Sassafras Creek Farm Recipes.

- Rainbow Chard (New!):  Yay! Greens are back! Chard is delicious simply sauteed, leaves and stocks, with sweet onions or garlic!  Toss in some raisins and pine nuts for a healthy Mediterranean twist.

- Salad Mix (New!): Freshly-harvested salad mix is delicious and keeps a long time!

- Turmeric (New!; limited quantity): First of the season...The queen of anti-inflammatory is here!  Bright orange and tasty grated into salads, soups or a sauteed  vegetable dish. Key ingredient in curries. Add to smoothies for an anti-inflammatory bonus. 

- 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!

- Beets (Red, Golden & Chioggia):  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.

- 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.

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers & Heritage (limited quantity)

- Zucchini (two kinds!) :  Traditional, but always delicious, and Flaminio Zucchini!  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! 

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).
