Another Sign of Spring – Rhubarb!

Rhubarb is a cold-loving winter crop and its arrival at the Market is a sign of spring. It has thick red or pink stalks that resemble celery, though they are unrelated. Rhubarb has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. In the 18th Century rhubarb powder was worth twice as much as opium!

Rhubarb stalks are edible, but the leaves are not. Stalks are extremely tart when eaten raw and are often dipped in honey or sugar. When cooked, rhubarb is still quite tart, though with a hint of sweetness and citrus. It pairs well with fruit and is popular for pies, tarts, crumbles, jams, and sauces. The Versatile Vegan suggests you combine rhubarb’s tartness with savory lentils for this hearty Rhubarb Lentil Soup. Or, get some apples from Gillogly and prepare Apple Rhubarb Crisp. Rhubarb’s tanginess is ideal for barbeque sauce like in this recipe. There’s extensive background on rhubarb and more recipes here!

You can get rhubarb stalks at Raber Family Organics and Franklinton Farms.

Other Finds

Franklinton Farms has bok choy and escarole, a slightly bitter green popular in Italian cooking. Raber Family Organics has turnips, radishes, and possibly kohlrabi. Rock Dove has arugula and choi sum, an Asian green with tiny yellow flowers ideal for stir frying. Head over to Tilley Farmstead for loads of greens including spinach and baby kale. 9N Farm plans to have lots of lettuce and a little kohlrabi.

Check out the fava bean microgreens from Seven Acre Farm - they have a unique nutty and creamy flavor. And don’t forget our mushroom vendors - Mayapple Farms, Marion Mushrooms, and New Path have many types of mushrooms to choose from. Mayapple Farms also has black cohosh plants, an Ohio native with beautiful pillar shaped flowers! Fans of ramps should head over to Blue Owl and Marion Mushrooms. Stridolo (or Sculpit) is an herb from northern Italy with long green leaves. It has a complex taste which some say include flavors of chicory, tarragon, and arugula. Visit Blue Owl and decide for yourself!

Several producers have herb starter plants including rosemary, dill, cilantro, mint, chives, and many others!

Producers have the following available this week. In some cases, items may sell out before the Market ends.

Apples, Arugula, Bok Choy, Cabbage, Chives, Choi Sum, Cider, Escarole, Herbs - various, Kale, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Lettuce, Greens mixes, Microgreens & shoots, Mushrooms – multiple varieties, Mustard Greens, Nettle, Parsley, Radishes, Ramps, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Turnips.
