Only 3 more Markets Left! California Farmers Market, Saturday (9AM - 1 PM)

Posted 11/8/2019 5:12pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have rainbow-colored and traditional orange carrots, green beans, salad mix, head lettuce, radishes, beets, sweet potatoes, potatoes, and lots more greens. 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)

- Radishes, Lollipop & French Breakfast varieties:  Multi-colored bunches of Lollipop and 1/2 red and white French Breakfast radishes. Both tasty, fresh and crisp.  

- Beets, Chioggia [Kee-o-ja]:  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. 

- Beets, Red:  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 orange carrots, without the greens and in bags and in bunches - you pick!

- Rainbow & Orange 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. [We also have yummy orange carrots too!]

- Green Beans (A lot more this week!):  We have fresh, tender-crisp, tasty green beans! Perfectly paired with potatoes!

 - Rainbow Chard:  Chard is delicious simply sauteed, leaves and stocks, with sweet onions or garlic!  After sauteing, drizzle with a little vinegar or toss in some raisins and pine nuts for a healthy, flavorful Mediterranean twist.

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

- Romanian Red Garlic:  Hardneck garlic brought to British Columbia from Romania. Excellent garlic flavor.  Especially high in garlic health characteristics.  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, Bibb:  We have some beautiful petite heads of bibb. Perfect for a personal salad or used for lettuce wraps!

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

- Lettuce, Green Leaf:  frilly heads of green leaf, make delicious salads!

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

- 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 for your patriotic dishes! 

- Fingerling Potatoes: We have Austrian Crescent fingerling potatoes that are great for roasting whole and serve tossed hot with a little olive oil, vinegar and fresh garlic!  Instant simple side dish.

- 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).
