Yesterday’s beet greens harvest is today’s fresh produce at marketâ€”well under 24 hours from field to stand! The fine dining action is really up top with the leavesâ€”great raw or lightly sauteed at this sizeâ€”but the tiny, unusually bright red Cioggia beets at the bottom got all the attention, with every third passerby asking about these strange looking “radishes”. Beet greens aren’t a staple veggie around here, still, enough people know ‘em and love ‘em to make these 500g bunches move briskly. A little slow, people-wise (it picks up in July), it was nonetheless an all around enjoyable, successful day at the farmers’ market, with beautiful weather to boot.
