BAE Farmer's Market - Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm

Posted 6/20/2014 6:53pm by David Paulk.
Well, summer came early this week with 90+ degrees, which means summer veggies are starting to come in, and some spring crops are saying, "see you again in the fall."  We'll be at the market tomorrow, rain or shine, and for you early risers you'll get a nice surprise.
For this Saturday we'll be offering:     
- Mountain Rose Potatoes (New!): There's nothing else like the freshness and flavor new red potatoes.
- Super Start Sweet Onions (New!)Big, very white, crisp sweet onions that are great for fresh eating in salads and on burgers, as well as sauteed or carmelized.
- Green Bell Peppers (New!): Large, shiny, crisp bells. Perfect for grilling, stuffing and stir fry.
- Basil:  Italian herb that says "summer is here."  (limited qty)
- Leeks: a mild, delicious member of the onion ("Allium") family; wonderful with fish, and braised as a side dish
- Fennel: aromatic anise flavor; adds nice crunchy, slightly sweet flavor to salads, particularly good with oranges, fish, and try cooked on pizza.
- Parsley:  fresh, aromatic, wonderful in salads and essential in tabouleh.
Cucumbers:  really great cukes; sweet and crunchy; great in all your summer salads.
- Summer Squash, Zephyr:  Our favorite summer squash - has a delicious mild, nutty, sweet flavor.  We pick them small so flavor is at its peak. (Limited Supply).
- Beets, three varieties:  Chioggia, Golden, Red:  Prized for their sweet flavor. Delicious baked, boiled or steamed. And don't forget about the greens, which are tasty as a spinach substitute.
Red Onions: Fresh harvested red onions that are great raw, grilled or caramelized.
- Romaine Lettuce: Big, fresh heads that add that crunch we like in salads.
- Red Leaf Lettuce: Loose leaf, delicate, mild flavor that mixes well with Romaine
- Rainbow Chard:  Big, beautiful, colorful leaves; when sauteed in a little olive oil or butter make a simply delicious, savory side dish.
