BAE Farmer's Market is OPEN - Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm (UNTIL 18 NOV.)

Posted 6/9/2017 3:39pm by David Paulk.

Greetings Farm Friends,

It's going to be a hot one on Saturday, so get your crisp, cool lettuce, salad mix, and other wonderful spring veggies while they last!  We have the start of summer veggies too --- A LOT of Zucchini and summer squash already! We so look forward to seeing you, your family and friends tomorrow!   See Photos of the Week at bottom of email!

Please check out below what we'll have at market!

- Basil (New!):  Fresh, intoxicatingly aromatic Italian basil. Great on pizza and in sandwiches. Make a pesto using our garlic scapes! Just follow the garlic scape pesto recipe and then throw in as little or as much basil as you want for added flavor.  

- Cucumbers (New!):  First of the season!  Limited quantity.

- Arugula:  For you arugula addicts, we've got plenty of that fresh, spicy green you literally crave. :-)  

- Beets, Red, Chioggia and Golden:  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 (peeled, then slice) or roasted. Peel your beets, cut into thick slices and coat with a little olive oil and grill over indirect heat OR don't peel first, 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!

- Spring Carrots (limited quantity):  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.

- 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 

- Green Beans:  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!

- 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.

- Shallot bunches:  Fresh shallots in bunches for you. They are sweet, mild and amazing tasting.  Try sauteed with our green beans, summer squash, kale, or chard.

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

- Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash :  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.
