Despite recent flooding across the state, with some farms dramatically impacted, fresh, local crops are still making it to market for your delectation. Cold-resistant greens are plentiful this time of year, including such small-leaved varieties as spinach, baby bok choy, and mâche. Also available are winter staples like potatoes and cabbage. Consider less-familiar types like Austrian crescent potatoes (yellow-fleshed, with an unusually elongated shape) and Savoy cabbage, which you've no doubt seen but may not know by name: it's the pale, crinkle-leafed variety.
