Hello Farm Friends,

We have a wide variety of delicious vegetables for you tomorrow including celery, lots of sweet green beans, carrots, chard, kale and more! See the long list below of fresh, certified organic veggies grown just for you! It should be a bit nippy, but sunny (hallelujah!).  So, swing by the market and stock up on veggies for the week! To help you plan your visit, please go to sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe  for easy, simple recipes for all of our produce.  We so appreciate your support and love to see you and hear how you are doing!  Only 2 more markets before the end of the California Farmers Market season (and start of the holiday season)!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

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

- Rainbow Chard (Back!): We have delicious rainbow chard!  Saute like you would kale, with some sweet onion and enjoy!  

 - Arugula:  We have your favorite spicy green! Wonderful as a bed for grilled salmon, drizzled with a sesame-ginger dressing or as a bed for roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts!

- Broccolini:  Tastes like broccoli, but more mild and delicious. Cook just like you would broccoli.

- Beets (Red & Chioggia):  Delicious on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and a drizzle of raspberry-walnut dressing.  Either roast with skin on and then rub off skins once cool, or peel, slice and boil until fork tender.  Serve warm with a little butter or cool on a salad.

- Cabbage:  Not too big, fresh, crisp and slightly sweet!

- Carrots:  We have plenty of freshly-harvested, sweet carrot bunches and topped in 2-lb bags!  Perfect for roasting, soups and stews!

- Green Beans:  We have the most at this market than we've had yet of this special late planting of green beans; kissed by frost and so sweet and crisp tender!

- Jerusalem Artichokes (a.k.a, Sunchokes):  And yes! We have Jerusalem Artichokes. They are really good roasted and taste like fresh artichoke hearts. If you like artichokes, you'll like sunchokes.

- Kale, Two kinds!:  We have both traditional curly kale and Italian Lacinato Kale. Wonderful sauteed, in soups or eat raw in a salad or add to your smoothie for a nutritious boost! 

- Leeks:  Beautiful bunches of leeks. Their mild onion, but distinctive flavor is key to a number of dishes, especially in potato-leek soup or with fish. See recipes on our Web site!

- Lettuce, Little Gem (red & green):  tasty smallish head lettuce. Mix a head of read and head of green for a colorful, delicious salad. They are like a crisp bibb lettuce.

- Lettuce, Romaine:  plenty of freshly-harvested, crisp romaine.

- Superstar Sweet Onions:  white, sweet and crisp like a vidalia or walla walla.  Great raw, roasted, sauteed or used in soups (think mirepoix).

- Sweet Bell Peppers:  Large and Small bells...perfect for sauteing and stuffing!

- Oranos (orange) Sweet Peppers:  Sweet, orange and crisp peppers. Great raw, sauteed or grilled!  They freeze really well! Think about putting some up for the winter. Ask us about it at our stand.

- Potatoes, Mt. Rose, Butterball, Blue, Carola & Desiree:  Five delicious varieties with different flavors and cooking qualities. Cut in quarters, toss with a little olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F until fork tender, longer if you want them to crisp up. Sprinkle with sea salt for a tasty, easy, nutritious side dish.

- Radicchio:  Yes, we have radicchio! If you've never tried it, now's your chance. Recommend roasting olive oil rubbed leaves, then just salt and eat as a side dish or cut up and toss with pasta.

- Radishes, lollipop: pretty colorful and tasty with a mild kick due to our cooler weather. 

- Sweet Potatoes, BeauregardYes, we have the first traditional sweet potatoes of the season...just in time for the start of fall!  You can eat these baked, roasted or mashed...and at any time of the day!  PLUS, they are so good for you.

- Sweet Potatoes, Murasaki:  Purple (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 in using them as you would Irish potatoes.

We take cash, checks, credit, debit and SNAP and eWIC cards, and FMNP coupons. The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, baked goods and booze. 

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

Rose, Blue, Fingerling, Carola & Desiree:  Five delicious varieties with different flavors and cooking qualities. Cut in quarters, toss with a little olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F until fork tender, longer if you want them to crisp up. Sprinkle with sea salt for a tasty, easy, nutritious side dish.

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers (limited quantity)

- Tomatoes, Green (unripe):  If you've never tried fried green tomatoes, now's your chance!

- Zucchini (two kinds!) :  Traditional, but always delicious, and Flaminio Zucchini!  Try this tasty, slightly nutty new variety of Zucchini we are trying out. It's striped and as the Italians would say it has a "costata" appearance. We love it! 

We take cash, checks, credit, debit and SNAP and eWIC cards, and FMNP coupons. The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, baked goods and booze. 

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

Hello Farm Friends,

How about coming by the farmers market tomorrow and supporting your local farmers before you go to the County Agricultural Fair!  Bring your friends and family to stock up on fresh, certified organic veggies for the week!  We are so happy to be your farmer and grow for you!  Thank you for supporting our farm!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Fresh Baby Ginger (New!): what you've all been asking for is finally here!  Freshly-harvest ginger has no tough skin.  It is baby pink and crisp-tender. It doesn't need to be peeled before grating. Naturally sweet and aromatic. Simply grate and add to any vegetable, fish, fruit dish.  Many uses. Check out Sassafras Creek Farm Recipes.

- Rainbow Chard (New!):  Yay! Greens are back! Chard is delicious simply sauteed, leaves and stocks, with sweet onions or garlic!  Toss in some raisins and pine nuts for a healthy Mediterranean twist.

- Salad Mix (New!): Freshly-harvested salad mix is delicious and keeps a long time!

- Turmeric (New!; limited quantity): First of the season...The queen of anti-inflammatory is here!  Bright orange and tasty grated into salads, soups or a sauteed  vegetable dish. Key ingredient in curries. Add to smoothies for an anti-inflammatory bonus. 

- Arugula:  We have your favorite spicy green! Wonderful as a bed for grilled salmon, drizzled with a sesame-ginger dressing or as a bed for roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts!

- Beets (Red, Golden & Chioggia):  Delicious on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and a drizzle of raspberry-walnut dressing.  Either roast with skin on and then rub off skins once cool, or peel, slice and boil until fork tender.  Serve warm with a little butter or cool on a salad.

- Garlic:  We have fresh, large, delicious heads of garlic!  So fresh, they ooze aromatic garlic juice when you mince them. Heavenly!

- Onions, Red:  Freshly-harvested sweet red onions. Delicious raw on a burger or sautéed in any dish.

- Superstar Sweet Onions:  Delicious, freshly-harvested sweet onions, like Vidalia onions! Wonderful raw or cooked. These are the amazingly sweet onions you've enjoyed from our stand for years now. 

- Sweet Red & Yellow Bell Peppers:  LARGE bells...perfect for the grill!

- Oranos (orange) Sweet Peppers:  Sweet, orange and crisp peppers. Great raw, sauteed or grilled!

- Shishito Appetizer Peppers:  First of the season shishito's. Delicious, green sauteing, appetizer  peppers from Japan! Just toss whole peppers in a hot pan with a little oil until blistered. Then serve sprinkled with sea salt. Eat peppers whole (except stem). What a nice treat to enjoy with friends on a weekend afternoon, served with a cold glass of beer or dry white wine. 

- Potatoes, Mt. Rose, Blue, Fingerling, Carola & Desiree:  Five delicious varieties with different flavors and cooking qualities. Cut in quarters, toss with a little olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F until fork tender, longer if you want them to crisp up. Sprinkle with sea salt for a tasty, easy, nutritious side dish.

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers & Heritage (limited quantity)

- Zucchini (two kinds!) :  Traditional, but always delicious, and Flaminio Zucchini!  Try this tasty, slightly nutty new variety of Zucchini we are trying out. It's striped and as the Italians would say it has a "costata" appearance. We love it!
