BAE Farmer's Market is OPEN - Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm (UNTIL 18 NOV.)

Posted 5/5/2017 6:45pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Friends,

What a difference a week makes?!  Spring is usually up and down in temperature, but this is ridiculous. The good news is that our cool season veggies love this weather and we will have the first strawberries of the season, which will likely go fast to the early birds.  Don't be afraid of the weather tomorrow; it's not supposed to rain until after the market is done. So, please come by and bring family and friends. We so enjoyed seeing you last week!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Strawberries (New!):  We have fresh-picked, sweet, organic strawberries for you to enjoy. These are the first flush of the season and are in limited quantity.  We will have more next week.  See photo below.

- Radishes, French Breakfast (New!):  Sure you could eat these for breakfast, but frankly they are good anytime. These are half red and white, tasty crisp radishes.  See photo below.

- Spring Carrots:  Fresh, aromatic and crisp carrots. Wonderful lightly roasted, steamed, or sauteed with a little butter. Also tasty grated into salads for fresh carrot flavor, color and nutrients.

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale, and you can eat the sweet, crunchy stems!

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

- Lettuce, Green Leaft and Red Leaf:  It's the perfect time of year to enjoy spring crisp green and red leaf lettuces.

- Radishes, Red:  Beautiful, deep red and tasty. Of course great on a salad or try with a little butter and salt, which is how German and Eastern Europeans enjoy them. It may sound like an unusual combination, but they really compliment each other.

- Salad Mix:  Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oakleafs. 

- 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.

- Spinach:  Freshly harvested, tasty spinach that is ready to eat raw, steamed, sauteed, or juiced.

- Sweet Potatoes, Beuaregard & Murasaki:  We have your favorite orange (Beauregard) and purple (Japanese Murasaki) sweet potatoes. They get sweeter in storage and are super sweet now.  So, easy to bake whole or slice and roast as sweet potato fries.

Like last year, don't worry about having cash at our stand, since we take 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.
