Autumn Colour At The Market

 I was helping at the market on Saturday. It was very cold but thankfully there was little wind most of the time.  Even though many familiar veggies are now finished for the season, the tables were still full of great colour and variety.
Above, three kinds of kale: Dino or Italian kale, Red Russian Kale, and your oft seen green curly kale.

                                        Lots of comments on the bright red radishes.

              Romanesco cauliflower never fails to solicit lots of questions and comments. Yes, it tastes just like cauliflower and is not a "new" thing but an heirloom variety.

 Carnival, the colourful round squash are great for stuffing and delicious.  The long ones with green stripes are Delicata squash and are sweet like candy.  Some even eat the skin too.

                                         The ever versatile and popular Butternut squash.

Rutabaga on the left, white turnips in the centre and watermelon radishes on the right. Sorry I don't have a picture of the inside of the watermelon radish as t is bright pink with a green edge, looking very much like a watermelon when sliced up.

                                          Beets, three ways, golden, pink and deep red.

They certainly have wonderful produce. Those radishes look so fresh and crisp. The romanesco cauliflower is so geometrically inspiring I would feel that I would have to cut it up in a rational way. I didn't know you could have purple kale but I enjoy seeing the purple flowering cabbage in gardens.
