We checked in with Corina Forson who was representing Four Sisters Farm at the Menlo Farmer’s Market to find out what greens were popular as people started shopping for their Thanksgiving dinner. Her report:

  • True Watercress is really popular when we have it. (She can’t promise for this Sunday’s market.)
  • People love the look of the Rustic Arugula with its tiny flower buds.
  • Purslane gets attention because a lot of people haven’t heard of it; it’s used  in Mexican and Mediterranean dishes.
  • We’re known for our sorrel and customers swear by the Joy of Cooking recipe for sorrel soup.
