Certified Organic Strawberries! California Farmers Market, Saturday, 9 AM - 1 PM

Posted 5/25/2018 3:04pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

One word...strawberries!  We have a lot of fresh, certified organic strawberries for your Memorial Day weekend get-togethers! We also have a few new items you'll see listed below, as well as a lot of your favorites, such as salad mix, arugula, carrots and sweet potatoes.  No rain forecasted until end of market.  So, come out with family and friends and get your Memorial Day fresh, organic veggies!

What we'll have at market tomorrow (photos below):

- Strawberries (We have a lot!):  Fresh-picked certified organic, local strawberries.  The only ones in St. Mary's County!

- Beets (New!): Sweet red beets! 

- Bibb Lettuce (New! Limited Quantity)

- Sweet Large Red Onions (New!): Freshly-harvested and delicious raw in a salad or on a burger; sauteed or grilled!

- First Summer Squash (New! Limited Quantity):  Zucchini and a little Zephyr.

- Arugula:  The spicy green you crave!  Try as a bed for grilled salmon or sprinkled on pizza as soon as it comes out of the oven. Yum!

- Certified Organic Basil Transplants for Sale

- Carrots:  Fresh, aromatic and crisp carrots. Wonderful roasted, steamed, or sauteed with a little butter. Wonderful juiced! Adds a natural sweet flavor and essential nutrients.

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

- Salad Mix:  We have lots of salad mix! Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oak leafs. 

- 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!

We take cash, 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.
