We are so happy to be your farmer and grow for you!  Thank you for supporting our farm!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- Watermelons, Sangria, Extazy and Japanese Icebox (New!):  We have 3 varieties of watermelons in 3 sizes!  Sangria is a voluptuous, oval fruit reaching up to 20 pounds with jade green stripes, red inside and sweet!  Extazy watermelons are seedless, personal size, bright red inside, with sweet, crisp flesh. Japanese Icebox watermelons are also personal-size, and, though not seedless, have the sweetest flavor! 

- Desiree Potato (New!): We have a new delicious variety of potato with lovely red skin and light yellow flesh. It is a versatile, fairly waxy variety which is firm and holds its shape, and is useful for all methods of cooking, from roasting to mashing and salads.

- Arugula:  We have your favorite spicy green! Wonderful as a bed for grilled salmon, drizzled with a sesame-ginger dressing or as a bed for roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts!

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

- Beets, 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:  We have A lot of tasty, sweet, asian cucumbers. Similar to English cucumbers.  Sweet, thinned skinned and almost non-existent seeds.

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

- 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. 

- Potatoes, Mt. Rose, Blue, Fingerling, Carola & Desiree (New!):  Five delicious varieties with different flavors and cooking qualities. Cut in quarters, toss with a little olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F until fork tender, longer if you want them to crisp up. Sprinkle with sea salt for a tasty, easy, nutritious side dish.

- Oranos Sweet Peppers:  Sweet, orange and crisp peppers. Great raw, sauteed or grilled!

- Shishito Appetizer Peppers:  First of the season shishito's. Delicious, green sauteing, appetizer  peppers from Japan! Just toss whole peppers in a hot pan with a little oil until blistered. Then serve sprinkled with sea salt. Eat peppers whole (except for stem). What a nice treat to enjoy with friends on a weekend afternoon, served with a cold glass of beer or dry white wine. 

- Summer Squash, Zucchini and Zephyr:  Delicious grilled or sauteed with our red or white onions, as a side dish to accompany steak, chicken or pork!

- Tomatoes, Big Heritage & Red Slicers!:  We have two types of heritage tomatoes!  One is essentially identical to Cherokee Purple and the other is gold and red in color and sweeeet!! Plus, we have many, many big red, delicious traditional slicer tomatoes!

- Cherry Tomatoes, golden tangy Sungold and red Sweet Treat!

We take cash, checks, credit, debit and SNAP and eWIC cards, and 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).
