Hello Farm Friends,

We'll have Ginger, Kale, Radishes, Sweet Potatoes, Arugula, Bunched Beets, Irish potatoes, lots of cherry, heritage and regular tomatoes and much more grown organically just for you! Pick up your fresh veggies for the weekend and the week ahead. Fresh is best for flavor and nutrition and for supporting your local farmer!

Friendly reminder to please bring bags!

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

- Fresh, Baby Ginger (New!):  beautiful, aromatic, fresh ginger! If you've never had fresh ginger, it is a real treat and nothing like what you get in the store.  It doesn't have that protective brown skin. It is fresh and pink like a baby.

- Curly Kale (New!):  Hail to the Kale!

- Red Radishes (New!):  It's finally cool enough to start having radishes again!

- Bonita & Orleans Sweet Potatoes(New!):  Bonita has light brown skin and creamy white, sweet flesh; milder flavor than the orange sweet potatoes. We also have the more traditional, very tasty Orleans orange sweet potatoes!

- Head Lettuce (limited):  Finally have some head lettuce, mostly romaine, but a few heads of bibb and green leaf.

- Arugula: Your favorite spicy green is back!  Of course you can eat as a salad with grated Parmesan, but try as the base for grilled salmon with a sesame-ginger dressing, or sprinkle on pizza as it comes hot out of the oven. 

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

- 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.

- Lorz Italian Garlic:  Heirloom variety brought to WA state from Italy. Particularly good softneck garlic flavor.  

- Romanian Red Garlic:  Hardneck garlic brought to British Columbia from Romania. Cloves streaked and lined on buff brown background. Excellent garlic flavor.  Especially high in garlic health characteristics.

 - Superstar Onions:  Your favorite, fresh white sweet onions are here!  Excellent raw on hamburgers or in salads; equally delicious caramelized over medium heat.

- 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!

- Shishito Peppers:  Tasty, easy appetizer peppers. Simply saute until blistered, sprinkle with sea salt and serve with an ice cold beer or dry white wine.  

- New Red, White and Blue Potatoes:  We have plenty of tasty versatile Mountain Rose, creamy white Carola and All Blue potatoes for your patriotic potato salads! If you've never eaten potatoes fresh out of the ground, well you are in for a treat. So delicious simply boiled until fork tender and served with a little butter or cut up and roasted in the oven until crisp with sea salt sprinkled on top.  See our Web site for recipes.

- 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 potato salad.

- Cherry Tomatoes, Sungold, Cherry Bomb and Citrine (new this year!): We have three varieties to satisfy your tastes.  All different and delicious!  Aside from great in a salad, they are wonderful in hot or cold pastas, or as a healthy snack.

- Heritage Tomatoes:  We have a mix of different brightly-colored tomatoes with wonderful heirloom flavor.

- Red Tomatoes:  red slicer tomatoes, perfect for salsas, burgers and just slice 1/4 inch thick and layer on a plate and sprinkle a little salt or drizzle with olive oil, maybe add a slice of mozzarella and sprinkle with basil. Summer on a plate...Yum!

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, 9am - 1pm).

Hello Farm Friends,

We'll have two kinds of watermelon, arugula, lots of sweet peppers and much more grown organically just for you! Pick up your fresh veggies for the weekend and the week ahead. Fresh is best in flavor and nutrition!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Extazy Watermelons (New!):  Seedless, sweet, medium size. A delicious way to keep cool in this heat! See photo below.

- Sangria Watermelons (More!):  Large, 10 - 15 lb watermelons; red and tasty, sweet flavor.  

- Arugula (Back!): Your favorite spicy green is back!  Of course you can eat as a salad with grated Parmesan, but try as the base for grilled salmon with a sesame-ginger dressing, or sprinkle on pizza as it comes hot out of the oven. See photo below.

- Canning Tomatoes (New!):  Reserve your 20-lb box of canning tomatoes today and pick up at market! $20/box. We have right now, 5 boxes of Roma tomatoes. Freeze or can tomatoes or make sauce this weekend! Super easy tomato sauce recipes on our website. Just reply to this email with the number of boxes you want and contact information. First come, first served. Please pick up by 1200 at the market. See photo below.

- Beets: Two varieties to try, Red and Chioggia.

- Cucumbers (Japanese and "Sweeter Yet" varieties; Limited Quantity):  We have plenty of your favorite, long, sweet, small-seeded cukes!  These are very similar to English cucumbers. Great in salads, quick frig. pickles (see recipe on Web site) or make refreshingly cool cucumber water (not just for the spa).

- Lorz Italian Garlic:  Heirloom variety brought to WA state from Italy. Particularly good softneck garlic flavor.  

- Romanian Red Garlic:  Hardneck garlic brought to British Columbia from Romania. Cloves streaked and lined on buff brown background. Excellent garlic flavor.  Especially high in garlic health characteristics.

- Shishito Peppers:  Tasty, easy appetizer peppers. Simply saute until blistered, sprinkle with sea salt and serve with an ice cold beer or dry white wine.  

- New Red, White and Blue Potatoes:  We have plenty of tasty versatile Mountain Rose, creamy white Carola and All Blue potatoes for your patriotic potato salads! If you've never eaten potatoes fresh out of the ground, well you are in for a treat. So delicious simply boiled until fork tender and served with a little butter or cut up and roasted in the oven until crisp with sea salt sprinkled on top.  See our Web site for recipes.

- 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 potato salad.
