2nd to Last BAE Farmer's Market Tomorrow, Saturday, 11 Nov (9 AM - 1 PM)

Posted 11/10/2017 3:53pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

Yes!...we WILL be there tomorrow, despite the cold. It will be a beautiful, sunny, very crisp fall day and we are dressing for it.  By the way, the cold snap just makes all these cool season veggies taste better, because they concentrate sugars in them to protect against freezing (like anti-freeze).  This makes everything a little bit sweeter.  So bundle up yourself, your family and friends and come on down to the Saturday Farmers Market! 

Tomorrow, 11 Nov, is the 2nd to last market in 2017. The last market is Saturday, 18 Nov (Saturday before Thanksgiving).

Please see below for all that we'll have at market tomorrow.  

- Beets:  Just-harvested 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. 

- Brussels Sprouts:  Super tasty, fresh brussels sprouts. Try sauteed in a little olive oil until a little browned and caramelized. Toss in a little garlic at the end or drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar once off heat.

- 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!

- Celery:  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.

- 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!  Ask about Semolina Flour...we have a couple bags.

- Garlic:  Only 1  more market after this one. Stock up today. End of season price ($1 ea., if you buy more than one).

- Fresh Ginger (limited quantity): 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.

- Jerusalem Artichokes: 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! 

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

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

- 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 ~15 mins or until desired consistency.

- 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 and Blue:  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 potatoes. And we have our delicious Mountain Rose (red) potatoes, which are absolutely delicious and very versatile.

- Radishes:  slightly spicy and crisp. Great in dips or plain with a little salt.

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

- 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).
