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

Posted 6/29/2018 6:12pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have quite a variety of vegetables for your weekend and 4th of July cookouts. The big news is that we have fresh organic sweet corn, cucumbers, basil and shishito appetizer peppers!  Also...red, white and blue potatoes for a patriotic potato salad!  That's 3 varieties of potatoes, each a different color!  Just imagine...your potato salad will be the hit of the party!  Yes, it'll be a hot one tomorrow, but it will only be in the 70's the first hour of the market...so come on down early.  As usual, we have a few items in smaller quantities that aren't listed below for the early birds. We look forward to seeing you!  Thank you so much for your support!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Patriotic Potatoes, Red, White and Blue (New!): Three varieties of Irish potatoes, a blue, a creamy white and a red, that make a delicious and very patriotic potato salad!

- Basil (New!): Fresh, large bunches of aromatic basil! Wonderful sprinkled into sauteed vegetables, great on pizza, as pesto, and many more dishes.

- Tomatoes (Limited Quantity):  Variety of first of the season tomatoes: red slicers, heritage and cherry.

- Shishito Peppers (New!): First of the season shishito's. Delicious, green sauteeing, appetizer  peppers from Japan!  Just ask about them at the stand if you've never tried them. Great served with a cold beer or dry white wine. 

- Arugula:  Your favorite spicy green!

- Green Beans:  We have more tasty green beans for your spring salads. Think Salad Nicoise with green leaf/romaine, new red potatoes, beets, carrots, green beans and fresh market eggs, hard boiled. Wow!

- 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

- Cucumbers:  Tasty, sweet, asian cucumbers. Similar to English cucumbers.  Sweet, thinned skinned and almost non-existent seeds.

- Fresh Carrots:  We have a new planting of carrots that have sized up and are crisp, tasty and ready to be roasted or eaten raw on salads or with your favorite dips!

- Garlic:  We have fresh, large, delicious heads of garlic!  So fresh, they ooze aromatic garlic juice when you mince them. Heavenly!

- 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. 

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

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

- Superstar Sweet Onions: Delicious, freshly-harvested sweet onions, like Vidalia onions! Wonderful raw or cooked. These are the amazingly sweet onions you've enjoyed from our stand for years now. 

- 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.

- Sweet Corn:  Fresh, certified organic, bi-color, super sweet corn! 

- 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:  We have your favorite orange sweet potatoes. 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, eWIC & FMNP coupons.

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).
