A Message from the Winter Market Team

This is a unique year for the Winter Market. As always, we’ll be closed the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27). But this year, for the first time in our history – both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on Saturday so we’ll be closed those days too! It will be important to shop this Saturday for the Thanksgiving weekend ahead. We’ll remind you again in December to plan ahead for the Christmas and New Year’s holiday weekends!

WHAT’S COOKING
Cold-Weather Kohlrabi

Sometimes referred to as German turnips, kohlrabi comes from the Brassica family, which includes broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard greens, and Brussels sprouts. It’s a cool-weather crop that’s at its best from early fall through spring. Try this recipe for a simple side dish; or go all out with stuffed kohlrabi that makes a complete supper.  Check out the recipe.
