Thanks to all our customers, old and new for helping make this market an enjoyable event. We again had a good selection of produce left until the end of the market, so you can avoid the queue and come later to buy your fresh veggies. Good news is that we now have a steady supply of organic kale, a green leafy from the cabbage family rich in antioxidants and minerals and vitamins which can help prevent cancer and lower cholesterol amongst other health benefits. It can be steamed, marinated for salads or tossed in olive oil and baked in the oven to make delicious,crispy kale chips. Another herb I would like to share with you is dandelion, this leaf is somewhat bitter but can be mixed in salads, it is third richest food source for vitamin A, it also provides calcium, potassium, and the B . It has excellent detoxifying properties, for cleansing the liver, improving gastrointestinal health, and an excellent tonic for the blood. I blend it in the food processor with garlic olive oil, arugula and parsley to make a pesto type sauce for pastas, spreading on bread or serving with brown rice. Look out for it at the market.
