It's the heart of summer. What's growing is an abundance of veggies, including some unusual ones.
A vendor had button mushrooms. I'm not sure why, but they came out pink in my picture. These were actually brown/white.
These are beets - the red ones with the white rings are chioggia beets. Sadly, they don't keep those colors when they are cooked. Here, we have red and orange beets, and white turnips. The beets had the greens still on - they are also edible.
I had never seen red Chinese cabbage, either. But here it was. We had greens in our refrigerator already, so passed these up, but I do intend to try them if they have them next time.
On You Tube, I even found a musical video about Chinese cabbage. Do give a listen - it's a little bit more than a minute.
And what summer market would be complete without garlic?
Do you have a farmers market near you? Do you try veggies that are new to you?
