There has been talk of growing an heirloom garden this summer, and potentially bringing some of our harvest to a local farmer’s market. Maybe we’re not ready this coming year, but someday we’d like to try it. What we want to know is, what do people like best when they buy produce at a farmer’s market?
Of those vegetables, how do your tastes run? I’ve got to admit, I’ve keep eyeing those tri-color tomatoes and purple carrots (and bell peppers, and cauliflower – who knew so many veggies came in purple??) So many options boasting extreme anthocyanin expression (the same antioxidant that makes blueberries blue) – but the big question: as interesting and intriguing as these varieties are, do people want to eat them??
