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:

- 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!

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

- Italian Romano Green Beans:  Long, flat green beans, with exceptional flavor.

- 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. 

- Sweet Red & Yellow Bell Peppers:  LARGE bells...perfect for the grill!

- 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 stem). What a nice treat to enjoy with friends on a weekend afternoon, served with a cold glass of beer or dry white wine. 

- Potatoes, Mt. Rose, Blue, Fingerling, Carola & Desiree:  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.

- 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, Heritage!:  We have 3 types of heritage tomatoes!  One looks and tastes like Cherokee Purple, the other is gold and red in color and sweeeet, and we have tangy Green Zebras!  Wonderful on a BLT or tomato sandwich or simply sliced on a plate and drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. Yummm.

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers!:  Plus, we have many red, delicious traditional slicer tomatoes!

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

- Watermelons, Sangria and Extazy:  2 varieties of watermelons in 2 sizes!  Sangria is a voluptuous, oval fruit reaching up to 20 pounds with jade green stripes, red inside and sweet!  Extazy watermelons are seedless, medium in size, bright red inside, with sweet, crisp flesh. (limited quantity)

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).
