West Seattle Farmers Market Today

New spring produce has arrived! Make your way to the West Seattle Farmers Market this weekend to fill your kitchen with fresh produce like chives, baby leeks, cabbage raab, and dandelion greens. You may even find something you've never tried before, like kohlrabi, a Sputnik-shaped veggie popular in places like Central Europe and Asia. Kohlrabi (German for "cabbage-turnip") is like a sweeter version of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, and can be eaten raw or cooked.

Peel it, chop it up, and toss it in your salad, or steam it, peel it, and season with salt and pepper. Pie lovers will be happy to note that rhubarb is coming in, so that pie you've been dreaming about all winter can finally become a reality. Southwest Alaska Street and 44th Avenue Southwest, Sundays, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
