What’s in season? Far out, Brussels sprouts!

Rita's Farm Produce's Brussels Sprouts at the Capital Region Farmers Market


Brussels sprouts have been given a bad rap over the years, which, quite frankly, we find difficult to understand. The Brussels sprout is the most adorable little cabbage looking vegetable there is.

These little balls of green are packed with health benefits to keep your stomach happy, including vitamins A and C, folic acid and dietary fibre; the benefits of these being they’ll protect against colon and stomach cancer.

Right now, it is peak Brussels sprout season, meaning there’s an abundance of sprouts at the Market. You can get your Brussels sprout fix from Rita’s Farm Produce who sells them straight off the stalk – they don’t come any fresher than this.

So, pop by, grab some of these deliciously healthy greens and cook them up into something healthy. A roast dinner accompaniment or a balsamic glazed side, perhaps? Happy Brussels sprout eating Market-goers.
