What’s At The Market This Week
THURSDAYS from 10:00 to 2:00Until the end of the Middle Ages, kale was probably the most commonly grown vegetable in Europe. Kale was so important in Scotland that the word for kale (kail) is synonymous with the word for food. In Bremen, in northern Germany, there is even an annual “kohlfahrt” or Kale Walk in which a group arranges a country-side walk to a local inn where they play various pub games and enjoy a meal of kale, sausage and beer.Kale is an excellent source of beta-carotene, lutein, calcium, and vitamins C and K. It is a good course of carotenoids and, like broccoli, contains several compounds with significant anti-cancer properties.
