Autumn Bounty

The farm stand at Watchung and Sixth will be up for a few more Mondays and Thursdays.

Stop by and get some fresh brussels sprouts, broccoli or even a purple cauliflower.

Try lightly steaming the brussels sprouts, then cut them in half and toss with olive oil and herbs to roast in the oven. They will be sweet and delicious!

Fresh green beans are also ready for steaming or blanching. They can be served cold with Italian dressing or warm with butter and herb seasoning. Or, if green bean casserole is on your Thanksgiving menu, get a basketful here.

On Monday, purple-and-green ornamental cabbages were also on sale.

The farm stand is definitely an asset for city residents, especially seniors and low-income families who get vouchers for fresh fruits and vegetables.
