Love love love the produce box! So easy to order ahead and pick up without having to fight the crowds or make an event of it. Amazingly fresh and local.

Great new market. The food is so good. There's food to eat at the event and more to take home. Parking is free and excellent.

SO SAVE THE DATE - OCTOBER 12th - 4:30-7:30 - 24th/Cottage Grove Ave.

Sneak peak of what’s on the agenda: Baked goods, hot cider, 3 singer/songwriters, yoga for all, crisp fall air, and wonderful people. Full details to come....

STAR VEGGIE 🕺🏻😎💃 + recipe at today's market. Come try it tonight!

Yu Choy looks a lot like the Chinese Broccoli (Gai Lan), except that the Yu Choy stalks are skinnier and the flowers are yellow. This vegetable is tender, the taste of the leaves are very much like spinach leaves, even though it is part of the mustard family. Fresh Yu-Choy has small tight yellow flowers, bright green leaves and stems, and if you look at the bottom of the bunch of stems, they should not be dried... out.

Fresh greens like this are often best prepared simply and quickly. This way the delicate greens are not swimming in salty or sweet sauce, where you can’t taste the vegetable at all. When the Yu Choy is fresh, you don’t even need salt or sugar – the chicken broth will add enough saltiness.
