Special Mushroom Edition!

Although mushrooms are not veggies, they share many properties with veggies including versatility and nutritional value. That makes them honorary vegetables! Button mushrooms are what most of us familiar with, but there are at least 14 varieties of commonly used edible mushrooms. Mushrooms can be sauteed, grilled, used for soups or try adding them to your pot pies. Mushrooms have loads of antioxidants, B vitamins and fiber.

Be a Trendsetter - Try Senposai!

Senposai, developed in Japan, is a cross between regular cabbage and Japanese mustard

greens.The leaves look like collard greens, but they are larger and more tender, with a rich, savory taste. It's excellent for salad, stir-fry and pickling. Give it a try, and it just may become your favorite green! You can find senposai at Franklinton Gardens. And, if you have a yen for other Asian greens, check out Jorgensen and Tilley .

It works for pies, as well. Leave quince on a sunny windowsill, and it will slowly release a delicate fragrance of vanilla and citrus. You can find quince at Anderson Orchards.

Remember, the Market moves indoors to the Shops Worthington Place starting next Saturda...
