Only 2 more Markets Left! California Farmers Market, Saturday (9AM - 1 PM)

Posted 11/15/2019 5:04pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have plenty of tasty, cold weather sweetened veggies, plus still some sweet bell, oranos and green peppers for you! Get your sweet potatoes now for Thanksgiving. They keep quite nicely for months in a cool dark pantry and continue to sweeten in storage. For the complete list of what we'll have tomorrow, see below. Pick up your fresh veggies for the weekend and the week ahead. Fresh is best for flavor, nutrition and supporting your local, certified organic farmer!   

[Last market is 23 November...the Saturday before Thanksgiving week.]

   Friendly reminder to please bring bags!  

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

- Cabbage, green (New!):  medium to large cabbages that are sweet!  If you've never had cabbages after a frost/freeze you are in for a treat!

- Cabbage, red (New!):  small to medium size cabbages that have richer flavor than the green cabbages. They are deelish!

- Arugula (Back!):  your favorite spicy, green!  Great added to salads, sprinkled on pizza as it comes out of the oven or as a bed to beets and goat cheese.

- Chioggia [Kee-o-ja] Beets:  Sweet, Italian, milder tasting than red beets, with a delightfully colorful bulls-eye pattern of pink and white when sliced. 

- Golden Beets:  Golden beets are similar to other beets, sweet, but are golden in color and milder in that earthy beet flavor. 

- Red Beets What more can I say, except you all can't get enough. Try on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and roasted walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette.

- Orange Carrots (More this week!):  fresh, super tasty, sweet orange carrots!  Cold weather makes them sweeter!

- Rainbow Carrots (More this week!):  Fresh, crunchy aromatic, purple, yellow and red carrot bunches. Wonderful raw with a dip or grated on a salad; roasted; or in your favorite soup. 

- Lorz Italian Garlic:  Heirloom variety brought to WA state from Italy. Particularly good softneck garlic flavor.  On sale!! Last of season.

- Kale, Curly & Lacinato:  Hail to the Kale!  We have both traditional curly kale and Italian Lacinato kale (a.k.a, Tuscan or Dino). Wonderful sauteed, in soups or eat raw as a salad or add to a smoothie for a nutritious boost!

- Lettuce, Romaine: fresh and crisp! Wonderful as salad or lightly grilled.

- Sweet Bell Peppers, Red and Orange:  Great raw, sauteed and just the right size for stuffing.

- Green Bell Peppers:  Fresh, crisp and great for stuffing with one of our meat vendors ground beef or sausage!

- Sweet Oranos Peppers: We have lots more this week of your favorite orange sweet peppers! Remember, they freeze really well and are wonderful to add to dishes in the winter!  On sale! 

- Red, White and Blue Potatoes:  Three varieties to choose from or try our red, white and blue sampler!  Red Mountain Rose, creamy white Carola and All Blue potatoes! 

- Sweet Potatoes, Orleans: Traditional, orange tasty sweet potatoes!

- Sweet Potatoes, Murasaki:  Purple outside and creamy white inside, Japanese sweet potatoes have a lovely vanilla/hazelnut flavor and even though they don't get as sweet as the orange ones, that just means they are even more versatile and can be used in both savory and sweet dishes. BTW, Murasaki means "purple" in Japanese.

- Salad Mix: We have lots of salad mix for tomorrow!  It's a mix of different varieties of lettuce leaves.

We take cash, debit and credit cards.

The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, local hard cider, local beer and baked goods. 

So, we hope to see you, your friends and family members on Saturday (BAE parking lot, 9 am - 1 pm).
