Greetings Farm Friends,

It's going to be a lovely day for market tomorrow!  Sunny and 70's! We'll have plenty of late spring veggies for you, such as plenty of beets (3 kinds), carrots, green beans, onions, fresh shallots, more arugula, zucchini and yellow summer squash, for example.  See Photos of the Week below!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Fresh Shallots (New!):  Yes, shallots fresh, straight from the earth to you. Okay, we did wash them. They are sweet and amazing tasting.  Try sauteed with our green beans, kale, or chard.

- Green Beans (New!):  It's the first flush of tasty green beans for your spring salads.  Think Nicoise with beets, carrots, green beans and Swamp Foxes' eggs, hard boiled.  Wow!

- Arugula (BAAaaack!):  For you arugula (or argula, you'll see our typo'd labels) addicts, we've got that fresh, spicy green you literally crave. :-)  

- Spring Carrots (Also Back!):  Fresh, aromatic, crisp carrots. Wonderful lightly roasted, steamed, boiled or sauteed with a little butter. Also tasty grated into salads for fresh carrot flavor, color and nutrients.

- Beets, Red, Chioggia and Golden:  We have plenty of beautiful beets this week. We sold out pretty quick last week. We have lots more this week. These are probably the most beautiful beets we've ever grown.  Conditions have been just right for them. Plus, they taste amazing! Three sweet beets to choose from:  traditional Red, Italian Chioggia and the beautiful golden.  All are great served boiled or roasted. Peel your beets, cut into thick slices and coat with a little olive oil and grill over indirect heat OR cut your beet in half and wrap in foil and roast over the coals. Once cool just rub off the skin with a paper towel. Sooo good with goat cheese and walnuts sprinkled on top or add all of the above to a bed of lettuce!  Deelish!

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale.  Simply sautee some sweet red onions first and then add the chopped leaves, along with the the sweet, crunchy stems!  Makes a great side dish!

- Garlic Scapes:  Try these delicious, garlicky green shoots sautéed with scrambled eggs, veggies or as a pesto!  We'll have copies of the pesto recipe at the market and on our Web site:  www.sassafrascreekfarm.com 

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

- Lettuce, Bibb & Romaine:  It's the perfect time of year to enjoy so delicious, buttery bibb lettuce that is perfect for making a delicate spring salad or to use in wraps. It is also a great time to enjoy fresh, crisp romaine lettuce in a caesar salad for your Memorial Day weekend salads.

- Red Onions:  Freshly harvested sweet red onions that are so versatile and great in any dish. Delicious roasted on the grill over indirect heat.

- Radishes, Red:  Beautiful, deep red and tasty. Of course great on a salad or try with a little butter and salt, which is how German and Eastern Europeans enjoy them. It may sound like an unusual combination, but they really compliment each other.

- Spring Salad Mix:  Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oakleafs. 

- Summer Squash, Yellow and Zucchini:  The first summer squash of the season!  Perfect for your Memorial Day grilling! 

Like last year, don't worry about having cash at our stand, since we take 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.

Greetings Farm Friends,

The weather continues to keep us on our toes!  We had quite a violent rain/hail storm event on our farm yesterday afternoon!  Hail is a farmer's worst nightmare, but we think our healthy, young veggies will recover. We will have some Romaine lettuce with a little cosmetic damage from the hail, but otherwise looks and tastes great!  

At market tomorrow, we will have pleasant temperatures in the upper 60's/low 70's AND NO RAIN until after the market.  So, please pay us and our other wonderful vendors a visit at the market tomorrow!  It's a win-win....Support your local farms and get fresh, tasty organic produce for your Memorial Day Weekend cookouts!

Greetings Farm Friends,

It will be a warm, sunny day at market. A considerable contrast from the last market!  The weather has been so confusing lately -- cold and wet, then hot, then cold, hot,...our plants are not sure what to do!  But they and we have persevered and will offer a beautiful display of colorful, fresh, nutritious organic vegetables for you.  We still have some strawberries, maybe not quite as many as last week, but we have some new items too!

- Radishes, Red:  Beautiful, deep red and tasty. Of course great on a salad or try with a little butter and salt, which is how German and Eastern Europeans enjoy them. It may sound like an unusual combination, but they really compliment each other.

Greetings Farm Friends,

Okay, so, Yes, it will be rainy and cool tomorrow, BUT you will not melt, promise, especially if you dress warm and wear a rain coat.  Most importantly, if you don't come to the market tomorrow, you won't get fresh, sweet organic strawberries to enjoy on Mother's Day, which should be a beautiful, warmer sunnyish day!  We have a lot more strawberries this week, since we are now at peak season.  We also have some new spring head lettuces of Bibb (pretty green with soft red colorations) and crispy Romaine.  See photos of berries and lettuce below. We so look forward to seeing you tomorrow!  

 What we'll have at market tomorrow:

Greetings Farm Friends,

The good news is that our cool season veggies love this weather and we will have the first strawberries of the season, which will likely go fast to the early birds.  Don't be afraid of the weather tomorrow; it's not supposed to rain until after the market is done. So, please come by and bring family and friends. We so enjoyed seeing you last week!

Hello Farm Friends!

Tomorrow will be a beautiful day to celebrate the last market of the season! We'll have lots of certified organic, fresh-from-our-farm produce for your Thanksgiving table.  The complete detailed list is below, but some highlights include CELERY, SPINACH, salad mix, beautiful heads of butterhead/bibb lettuce, arugula, kale, chard, Irish and sweet potatoes, beets, radishes, sweet and green peppers, japanese turnips, and ginger!

It's been a great market season and it would not have been possible if it were not for you, our wonderful customers!  We are so thankful that you have chosen to  buy vegetables from our farm. We very much appreciate your support and have so enjoyed getting to know you, your children, family and pets (kale-eating dog, you know who you are)!

Please go to our Web site for simple, tasty recipes for all of our produce:  www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe.  As a reminder, in addition to cash, we take debit, credit and SNAP EBT cards, checks, as well as FMNP farmer's market coupons. 

What we'll have at market...

- Celery (New!):  Farm fresh celery is such a treat compared to store-bought celery. It is so much sweeter and aromatic. It will make a difference in your Thanksgiving stuffing, roasts, and soups.

-Arugula:  Of course, mix with salad greens, but also try on a sandwich or on top of pizza, as soon as it comes out of the oven, for a nice kick of spice and healthy greens.

- Beets, Golden, Chioggia, Red bunched and topped:  Now's your chance to try our wonderful, sweet beets. We have sweet, mild golden beets and your traditional, always good, sweet red beets and the fancy, Italian pink and white bulls-eye beets. Try them out today!

- Chard, Rainbow: I love this green. It has such pretty, glossy colorful leaves and it tastes so good. Chard is in the beet family. If you haven't tried it, well, give it a go! Prepared the same as spinach or kale. Simply saute with the tasty, crunchy stems too. Tried sauteed with raisins. Great combo!

- Eggplant, Asian:  We have beautiful, sweet (not at all bitter) Asian, light purple eggplants that are wonderful on the grill, simply sauteed with other vegetables or used in some very traditional dishes such as eggplant caponata (see eggplant recipes at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe).

- Ginger, freshly-harvested, baby:  You have got to see and taste freshly-harvested ginger!  It is so pretty, pink, and has a fresh, spicy aroma. It is super tasty and easy to use...no peeling required, because it doesn't have it's brown protective coating on yet.  Don't worry about how much to buy, because you can freeze ginger, pull it out of the freezer, grate frozen and put what's left back in the freezer, repeat until gone. None will go to waste!

- Jerusalem Artichokes (a.k.a., sunchokes):  they look like knobby potatoes, but taste like artichokes. Really good, peeled, sliced/diced, roasted in the oven at 350 degrees until fork tender, and sprinkled with sea salt...like artichoky potatoes. They get a little brown and crispy...yum! See soup recipe on our Web site: www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe

- Kale, Curly & Lacinato:  We have plenty of two types of kale to satisfy your craving for greens!  Both tasty and can be prepared in the same way, sautee, steam, add to soups, make into chips, use in salads or juice. 

- Lettuce, butterhead/bibb, romaine and green oak leaf:  fresh and sweet - just add a simple dressing; nothing else is needed to thoroughly enjoy.

- Superstar Sweet Onions:  Yes, we have those wonderful vidalia-like sweet white onions that are wonderful raw in a salad, sauteed,  caramelized or grilled. 

- Oranos Peppers, Orange & Green:  We have those sweet, orange peppers that you like so much. We also have green bell type oranos peppers too!

- Rolled Oats (a.k.a., oatmeal):  That's oatmeal y'all!  Yes, we grew oats on our farm, harvested, milled and rolled them. They cook in the same amount of time as regular Quaker oats...about 10 mins tops. They are mighty tasty too! (limited quantity)

- Irish Potatoes, German Butterball and Blue!  We have two kinds of tasty potatoes for you to try.  Your favorite blue potatoes that are great for roasting or frying, because they turn brown and crisp so nicely. We also have the German Butterball white potato that is similar to a Yukon gold and wonderful in mashed potatoes or boiled. Frankly, they both potatoes are great for many uses. Try both! We have a mix for you!

 - Sweet Potatoes:  In addition to our traditional delicious, orange Covington sweet potatoes, we have purple Murasaki sweet potatoes too.  Super tasty simply sliced and roasted for 15 mins at 350 degrees, baked whole like a baked potato, microwaved, or boiled, then mashed; for lunch, dinner, and even breakfast!  AND DON'T FORGET SWEET POTATO PIE!

- Radishes, French Breakfast and Red: We have plenty of radishes to spice up your salads or just eat like the Eastern Europeans do with a little salt and butter on bread. Give it a try!

- Spinach: It seems that no explanation is needed for spinach, except our's is fresh, fresh, fresh, and sweet, slightly nutty, um tasty.

 - Hakurei Turnips:  White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads like a mild radish or Jicama, or simply sauteed, steamed or roasted. And don't forget the very southern turnip greens! So tasty with or without the bacon.

- Tomatoes, heirloom (red):  We have a limited quantity of great tasting heirloom tomatoes. 

- Tomatoes, green: We have some green tomatoes if you would like to make fried green tomatoes or slice thin and use in a frittata.

Don't worry about having cash at our stand -- we take credit, debit & SNAP.
