Last BAE Market Tomorrow (18 NOV., 9 AM - 1 PM)!!

Posted 11/17/2017 6:07pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

Tomorrow is the last market of this 2017 season AND it is just before Thanksgiving!  We have a lot of what you will need for your Thanksgiving dinners!  We have frost-kissed and; therefore, sweeter, freshly-harvested Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Kale, Arugula, Chard, Red Beets and much, much more. Please see the complete list below.

It has been such a great season!  We are happy to say that we have met many new customers this season who have discovered our market and stand. We are also so grateful to all of our wonderful, loyal customers who have been buying our vegetables over the years. We have grown to know you and your families. We will miss seeing you all each week. Thank you so much!!  

You can continue to follow our farm happenings over the winter at our Web site (sassafrascreekfarm.com), facebook page, and at Instagram. You can continue to find our produce at the The Good Earth Natural Foods Store in Leonardtown, at Chesapeake's County in St. Leonard, and MOM's Organic Market in Waldorf until market starts again at the end of April.

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

- Arugula: We have that spicy green you crave for your Thanksgiving salads!

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

- Brussels Sprouts:  We have a lot of super tasty, just-harvested today 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. Heavenly dish for your Thanksgiving table!

- 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 plenty of freshly harvested, sweet bunches of carrots for your Thanksgiving dinner!

- 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.  We have lots of celery for you at this market!

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, colorful tasty green.  Great side dish for Thanksgiving!  Simply sautee some sweet onions in olive oil and then toss in chopped up chard, stems and all!  Add golden raisins while cooking for a wonderful contrast with the chard.

- 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!  Think about making all of your holiday cookies, cakes, and pancakes (yum!) with FRESH flour!

- Garlic:  Last of the season price ($1 ea., if you buy more than one). 

- 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. We have a lot!

- Romaine Lettuce:  Freshly-harvested, crisp romaine (limited quantity).

- 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.  We will be bringing a lot for you to stock up for the winter. Think about those oatmeal cookies and apple crisps you'll want to make.  Also makes a great gift for the holidays...locally-grown oatmeal!

- 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.

- Spinach:  Delicious, versatile green that is great as a salad or sauteed. (limited quantity)

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

- Salad Mix:  Yes, we have lots of fresh, tasty and ready to eat 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:  Yes, we still have tasty red slicing tomatoes!  Last of the season, from our high tunnels. 

- 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.  You can freeze it! So stock up for the winter!

- Hakurei (Japanese) Turnips:  Particularly tasty raw.  They're sweet and crisp!  Great in salads or use as chips with dip, simply sautee or great roasted with a chicken, beef, potatoes and onions! 

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).
