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

Posted 10/27/2017 5:06pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

We enjoyed the gorgeous weather this week harvesting carrots and Jerusalem artichokes, of which both will be at the market this week!  Tomorrow will again be a lovely day to bring your family and friends to the farmer's market to buy your fresh, organic veggies, and pick up baked goods, meat and your favorite libation for the week! In case you didn't know our market sells local wines, whiskey and now hard cider. We hope to see you there!  

Please see below for all that 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.

- Jerusalem Artichokes (New!): a.k.a., sunchokes; look like knobby potatoes, but taste like artichokes. Really good, peeled, sliced/diced, lightly tossed with olive oil, 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! 

- Romaine (Back!):  fall fresh-harvested, tasty and crisp! 

- Arugula:  We've got that spicy green you crave!  Great mixed with other greens as a bed to grilled salmon or beets and goat cheese. Yum!

- Beets:  Just harvested Golden and Red beets.  Great either boiled or roasted, like a potato. Wonderful on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and walnuts. 

 - Broccolini:  It is similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. It is a natural hybrid of broccoli and an Asian vegetable, which means it has a milder broccoli flavor, is tender and cooks quickly. See recipes on our Web site. 

- Cabbage:  Smallish cabbages that are so great fresh and are slightly sweet!  Wonderful simply sauteed, in soups, use for cabbage rolls...and so on.  Much tastier than what you get in the store.  Also, try your hand at making homemade sauerkraut! It's really easy, tasty and good for you! Just ask Jen.

- Carrots:  We have freshly harvested, sweet bunches of carrots!

- Rainbow Chard: We have an excellent supply of delicious rainbow chard!  Saute like you would kale, with some sweet onion and enjoy!  

- All Purpose & Whole Wheat Flour: Yes, we grew wheat on our farm and have milled it into flour! That's 2-lb bags of certified organic whole wheat and All Purpose flour!

- Garlic:  Fresh garlic is so aromatic and so easy to mince! Try some today!

- Fresh Ginger: what you've all been asking for is finally here!  Freshly harvested ginger has no tough skin and doesn't need to be peeled before grating. Naturally sweet and aromatic. Simply grate and add to any vegetable dish, soup, tea or cookies. Recipes at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipes.

- Kale, Curly & Lacinato:  Great sauteed, braised, in soups, as chips or in smoothies. Lacinato Kale is also known as "Dino" or "Tuscan" Kale.

- Bibb Lettuce:  Lovely green and light red-accented leaves in that beautiful bibb bouquet. Leaves are soft and perfect as a salad bed or for wraps. 

- Rolled Oats (Oatmeal):  We have 1.8-lb bags of rolled oats (oatmeal), from oats grown on our farm. They have a wonderful nutty, naturally slightly sweet flavor and are certified organic, like all of our produce! Cook them as you would Quaker oatmeal. 2:1 ratio of water to oats; cook time 10 -15 mins or until desired consistency.

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

- Super Sweet Superstar Onions:  If you've been to our stand over the years, then you know these super sweet onions!  They are large, white and very similar to vidalia onions. They are very good raw on burgers, in salads, or sauteed until caramalized. Make sure you cook them on med-low heat, because the sugars in them can burn if too hot.

- Sweet Orange Peppers:  Oranos peppers are bright orange, shiny and sweet. So, good raw or grilled!  They freeze really well!  Freeze whole and enjoy sauteed in the middle of winter.

- Green Peppers:  These are tasty, savory peppers that are wonderful in any vegetable dish!

- Potatoes, Red, Blue, and German Butterball:  Four varieties of tasty Irish potatoes.  The blue potatoes are blue inside and out, full of anti-oxidants, and great for making crispy fries or roasting.  German Butterballs are a creamy yellow/white and great for boiling, roasting or making mashed potates. And we have our delicious Mountain Rose (red) potatoes, which are absolutely delicious and very versatile.

- Ostergruss Radishes: Reddish-Pink, carrot-shaped radishes with crisp texture and spicy flavor.  German variety translates to "Easter Greeting."  Beautiful addition to salads and perfect for dipping and vegetable platters.

- Salad Mix:  Yes, we have ready to eat, tasty salad mix!

- Spinach:  Salad-size bagged spinach. Great for eating fresh or cooking. We think you'll like the naturally sweet flavor. 

- Sweet Potatoes, Beauregard, Covington & Murasaki:  Ye ask and ye shall receive your favorite sweet potatoes!  Traditional orange and Japanese purple (outside purple/inside white). 

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers:  We have traditional, very tasty red hybrid slicing tomatoes. 

- Fresh Turmeric:  The queen of natural anti-inflammatory foods is here! Bright orange and tasty grated into salads or added to vegetable dishes. Key ingredient in curries. Add to smoothies for an anti-inflammatory bonus. See ginger/turmeric smoothie recipe on our web site.

- Hakurei (Japanese) Turnips:  Particularly tasty raw.  They're sweet and crisp!  Great in salads or use as chips with dip.  Or saute with our without the greens (turnip greens, remember?!).  Great also roasted with potatoes and onions with a roast chicken or beef! 

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).
