California Farmers Market is Open! Saturday, 9 AM - 1 PM (Apr - Nov)

Posted 7/19/2019 4:37pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,

I think you may have heard...it will be hot tomorrow.  So, for goodness sake, please come early, so that we can leave early! :-) We'll have a third cashier to keep the line moving. We will have organic SWEET CORN and cool, sweet WATERMELONS, canning tomatoes and much more, just for you! See complete list and photos below!

What we'll have at market tomorrow:

- SWEET CORN (BACK!):  We have super sweet, bi-color, certified organic corn! 

- Sangria Watermelons (New!):  Large, 10 - 15 lb watermelons; red and tasty, sweet flavor.  A delicious way to keep cool in this heat! 

- Canning Tomatoes (New!):  Reserve your 20-lb box of canning tomatoes today and pick up at market! We have right now, 3 boxes of romas and one box of a mix of slicers and roma tomatoes. Freeze or can tomatoes or make sauce this weekend! Super easy tomato sauce recipes on our website. Just reply to this email with the number of boxes you want and contact information. First come, first served. Please pick up by 1100.



- Japanese Icebox Watermelons (Last of the Icebox!): super sweet, personal-sized watermelons. See photo below.

- Beets: Two varieties to try, Red and Chioggia.

- Cucumbers (Japanese and "Sweeter Yet" varieties):  We have plenty of your favorite, long, sweet, small-seeded cukes!  These are very similar to English cucumbers. Great in salads, quick frig. pickles (see recipe on Web site) or make refreshingly cool cucumber water (not just for the spa).

- Lorz Italian Garlic:  Heirloom variety brought to WA state from Italy. Particularly good softneck garlic flavor.  

- Romanian Red Garlic:  Hardneck garlic brought to British Columbia from Romania. Cloves streaked and lined on buff brown background. Excellent garlic flavor.  Especially high in garlic health characteristics.

- Green Beans: We have delicious (stringless) green beans. They pair very nicely with potatoes!

- Onions, Red:  Freshly-harvested, sweet red onions! Great raw on burgers, grilled or saute with vegetables.

- Onions, Yellow:  Freshly-harvested, versatile yellow onions!

 - Superstar Onions:  Your favorite, fresh white sweet onions are here!  Excellent raw on hamburgers or in salads; equally delicious carmelized over medium heat.

- Sweet Bell Peppers, Red and Yellow

- Sweet Oranos Peppers:  your favorite orange sweet peppers!

- Shishito Peppers:  Tasty, easy appetizer peppers. Simply saute until blistered, sprinkle with sea salt and serve with an ice cold beer or dry white wine.  

- New Red, White and Blue Potatoes:  We have plenty of tasty versatile Mountain Rose, creamy white Carola and All Blue potatoes for your patriotic potato salads! If you've never eaten potatoes fresh out of the ground, well you are in for a treat. So delicious simply boiled until fork tender and served with a little butter or cut up and roasted in the oven until crisp with sea salt sprinkled on top.  See our Web site for recipes.

- Fingerling Potatoes: We have Austrian Crescent fingerling potatoes that are great for roasting whole and serve tossed hot with a little olive oil, vinegar and fresh garlic!  Instant simple potato salad.

- Summer Squash (Zucchini, Zephyr and Yellow): We have plenty of these three delicious varieties of summer squash. Great sauteed, steamed or cooked on the grill. 

- Flaminio Italian Summer Squash:  Romanesco Costata type zucchini. The fruit is attractive with dark green base and light green ribs. Flesh is nutty and sweet. 

- Cherry Tomatoes, Sungold & Sweet Treat: We have a lot of both types of cherry tomatoes to satisfy your tastes.  One very sweet and tangy, like an orange, and the other, red and sweet with lower acid.  Both delicious!

- Red Tomatoes:  red slicer tomatoes, perfect for salsas, burgers and just plain eating with a little salt.

We take cash, credit and debit cards.

The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, local hard cider, local beer and baked goods. 

So, we hope to see you, your friends and family members on Saturday (BAE parking lot, 9am - 1pm). We hope that you are all doing well.
