The weather outside may be frightful, but inside The Great Big Greenhouse, the Huguenot-Robious Farmers Market is delightful…
This week our Farmers Market moves inside The Great Big Greenhouse for the winter. Yes, we’re here every Thursday from 10 until 2—year round!
With Thanksgiving next week, I thought I’d share with you a friend’s delicious recipe for what her family calls “Thanksgiving Cabbage.” It’s very similar to my grandmother’s braised cabbage.
1 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 large onion, sliced
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
5 slices bacon, chopped
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 to 2 tbsp honey
Sauté’ bacon until rendered, add cabbage, onions, and garlic and sauté’ over medium-low heat until done. Stir in vinegar and honey.
And fresh cabbage is here this week at the Market:
Unkol Chuck will be here with cast-iron kettle-cooked Brunswick stew; Phal’s Café will be here with Asian noodle bowls, wonton soup, fried rice and more; Real Country Sausage will be here with a variety of nitrite/msg-free sausages; and Great Harvest Bread Company will be here with a variety of fresh-baked breads, etc.
Walnut Hill Farm will be here with locally raised produce (be sure to get enough local sweet potatoes for next week’s Thanksgiving feast); Melrose Farm will be here with a wide selection of homemade jams, jellies, pickles and butters; Sweet Treats RVA will be here with delicious baked pies, tarts and pound-cakes (Thanksgiving desert anyone?); and Alfredo will be here with local raw honey and honey products.
As always, fabulous one-of-a-kind handcrafts from local artisans are available as are free-ranged eggs.
We’re here every Thursday (except for Thanksgiving) from 10 until 2 INSIDE The Great Big Greenhouse.
