More Certified Organic Strawberries! California Farmers Market Open 9 am - 1 pm, Saturday

Posted 5/10/2019 5:12pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

We have fresh, certified organic strawberries for you and your mother on this Mother's Day weekend!  This market we'll have 3x what we had last week. We also have lots of your other favorites at market (see list below) and easy recipes on our Web site.  Will be a cool, pleasant spring day. So, come out with family and friends and get your fresh, flavorful and nutritious veggies!

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

- Strawberries (MORE!):  Just-picked from our farm. These are not your grocery store strawberries. They are sweet and ripe.  The only certified organic strawberries in St. Mary's County!

- Romaine Lettuce (New!):  Crisp, fresh lettuce makes a perfect salad. See our Web site for easy, homemade salad dressing recipes.

- Summer Squash (New!): Limited quantity of first of the season zucchini and zephyr squash.

- Arugula:  We have plenty of baby, spring arugula with a  mild kick.

- Rainbow Chard:  Beautiful, glossy leaves and colorful stems. They have just as many nutrients as kale, and you can eat the sweet, crunchy stems when sauteed! Try sauteed with golden raisins (or chopped sweet onion) and lightly toasted pine nuts.

- 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. 

- 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 [Last of the scapes for the season!]

-  Radishes, French Breakfast, "Lollipop" and Red varieties:  Beautiful, crisp and tasty! Of course great on a salad, but try eating them with a little salt and butter, as they do in France, Germany and Eastern European as an appetizer. It may sound unusual, but the flavors really compliment each other.

- Salad Mix (limited quantity):  Convenient, delicious and ready to eat salad. Perfect blend of red and green butter heads and oakleafs. 

- Spinach:  delicious, salad size, tender spinach. Great raw or cooked.

- Hakurei Turnips:  White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads or simply sauteed or steamed, along with, of course, the tasty turnip greens.

We take cash, credit and debit 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). We've missed you and hope that you are all doing well.
