2018 California (BAE) Farmer's Market is OPEN this Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm (UNTIL 17 NOV.)

Posted 6/8/2018 2:23pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have plenty of your favorite vegetables at market tomorrow, including zucchini and zephyr summer squash, green beans, beets, salad mix, and more! See full list below. Please don't be deterred by the weather forecast (It seems that I've been saying this for weeks now!). Even though the rain probability is high-ish, the actual amount of rainfall is expected to be low.  We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you, your family and friends! Thank you!

What we'll have at market tomorrow (photos below):

- Romaine Lettuce (New!):  Freshly harvested from our farm directly to you!  There's nothing else like a crisp head of romaine for your salads or on the grill.

- Green Leaf Lettuce (New!):  Fresh, spring green leaf lettuce. Perfect for your salads and burgers! See easy homemade salad dressing recipes at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe

- Arugula:  The spicy green you crave!  Try as a bed for grilled salmon or sprinkled on pizza as soon as it comes out of the oven. Yum!

- Beets, Golden, Chioggia & Red:  Three kinds of sweet beets, each with their own slightly different flavor. Wonderful baked, roasted, or simply peeled, sliced, boiled and served warm with butter or cool on a salad. Try pickling! Go to www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe

- Green Beans:  We have tasty green beans for your spring salads. Think Salad Nicoise with salad mix, beets, carrots, green beans and fresh market eggs, hard boiled. Wow!

- Rainbow Swiss Chard: Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale.  Simply sautée some sweet red onions first and then add the chopped leaves, along with the the sweet, crunchy stems, maybe toss in some roasted pine nuts for a Mediterranean treat!  Makes a great side dish!

- Garlic Scapes: Try these delicious, garlicky green shoots sautéed with scrambled eggs, veggies or as the best pesto ever!  They're like garlicky, scallions. We'll have copies of the pesto recipe at market or find at:  www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe 

- Curly Kale: This is the kale you are most familiar with that you can use in soups or simply sauteed. Also very 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 alternative to the traditional curly kale. It makes great kale chips and salads. 

- Kohlrabi: Never tried Kohlrabi? Now is your chance! It is in the cabbage family and is great raw or cooked.  Peel first like a carrot, then try raw sliced or grated in your salad or roasted with chicken or as a side dish.  Yes, you can eat the greens!  Simply sautee like you would kale or chard. Learn more at Kohlrabi Health Benefits & Recipes.

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

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

- Shallots: Yes, shallots fresh, straight from the earth to you. Okay, we did wash them. They are sweet and amazing tasting. Try sauteed with our green beans, kale, or chard.

- Summer Squash, Zucchini & Zephyr:  We have plenty of both kinds of summer squash.  Delicious grilled or sauteed with our red or white onions, as a side dish to accompany steak, chicken or pork!

- Sweet Potatoes, Covington and Murasaki:  We have your favorite orange sweet potatoes and purple Murasakis.  Murasaki's are a Japanese sweet potato that is purple on the outside, white on the inside, and has a vanilla, chestnut flavor.  So, easy to bake whole or slice and roast as sweet potato fries. Just slice 1/4 inch thick, toss with a little olive oil, roast in oven at 350 degrees for 15 mins, flip the slices and roast for about 5 mins more, sprinkle course salt (and pepper, if you like). That's it!  You have a guilt-free, sweet and so-good-for-you side dish for lunch/dinner or serve with eggs at breakfast!

We take cash, credit, debit and SNAP cards.

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).
