Update to Last California Farmers Market of 2019! Saturday (9 AM - 1 PM)

Posted 11/22/2019 7:17pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends,  Update...Forgot to list Rainbow Chard!

Pick up your fresh, tasty veggies for your Thanksgiving Dinner! All of our veggies have an extra sweet flavor because of the cold!  Remember fresh is best for flavor, nutrition and supporting your local, certified organic farmer!   

       [Last market is tomorrow...the Saturday before Thanksgiving.]

   Friendly reminder to please bring bags!  

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


- Spinach (New!):  very fresh and sweeeet, since it's experienced cold weather!

- Hakurei Turnips (New!):  We haven't had these tasty, crisp-sweet, Japanese turnips. They are not your mother's turnips. They are wonderful raw on a salad or with a dip; or roasted with potatoes.  And don't forget you can eat the turnip greens!  Sautee with a sweet onion or add a little bacon for a classic southern dish.

- Radicchio (New!): Pretty little red & white heads. So delicious roasted and added to roasted vegetables or tear and toss with pasta. Limited quantity.

- Rainbow Lacinato (New!): We have a limited quantity of this new variety of kale.

- Arugula:  your favorite spicy, green!  Great added to salads, sprinkled on pizza as it comes out of the oven or as a bed to beets and goat cheese.

- Chioggia [Kee-o-ja] Beets:  Sweet, Italian, milder tasting than red beets, with a delightfully colorful bulls-eye pattern of pink and white when sliced. 

- Golden Beets:  Golden beets are similar to other beets, sweet, but are golden in color and milder in that earthy beet flavor. 

- Red Beets What more can I say, except you all can't get enough. Try on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and roasted walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette.

- Cabbage, green (New!):  medium to large cabbages that are sweet!  If you've never had cabbages after a frost/freeze you are in for a treat!

- Cabbage, red (New!):  small to medium size cabbages that have richer flavor than the green cabbages. They are deelish!

- Orange Carrots (More this week!):  fresh, super tasty, sweet orange carrots!  Cold weather makes them sweeter!

- Rainbow Carrots (More this week!):  Fresh, crunchy aromatic, purple, yellow and red carrot bunches. Wonderful raw with a dip or grated on a salad; roasted; or in your favorite soup. 

- Lorz Italian Garlic:  Heirloom variety brought to WA state from Italy. Particularly good softneck garlic flavor.  On sale!! Last of season.

- Kale, Curly & Lacinato:  Hail to the Kale!  We have both traditional curly kale and Italian Lacinato kale (a.k.a, Tuscan or Dino). Wonderful sauteed, in soups or eat raw as a salad or add to a smoothie for a nutritious boost!

- Lettuce, Romaine: fresh and crisp! Wonderful as salad or lightly grilled.

- Green Bell Peppers:  Fresh, crisp and great for stuffing with one of our meat vendors ground beef or sausage!

- Carola and Blue (and a few Mountain Rose) Potatoes:  Carola is like a yukon gold (but tastier), perfect for making mashed potatoes, and All Blue is wonderful for roasting with your Thanksgiving turkey.

- Sweet Potatoes, Orleans: Traditional, orange tasty sweet potatoes!

- Sweet Potatoes, Murasaki:  Purple outside and creamy white inside, Japanese sweet potatoes have a lovely vanilla/hazelnut flavor and even though they don't get as sweet as the orange ones, that just means they are even more versatile and can be used in both savory and sweet dishes. BTW, Murasaki means "purple" in Japanese.

- Salad Mix: We have lots of salad mix for tomorrow!  It's a mix of different varieties of lettuce leaves.

We take cash, debit and credit 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, 9 am - 1 pm).
