Walpole Village Farmer's Market
This is the first year for a farmer's market in the Walpole village. It was small but fun. This colorful vegetable is Kohlrabi (Brassica oleracea) --from the cabbage family. The name comes from the German kohl (cabbage) and rube or rabi (turnip). Taste: similar to broccoli stems though milder and sweeter. Can be eaten raw. In Kashmir kolrahbi is eaten 3-4 times a week.
Walpole has a winery! I bought a bottle for my bro's birthday present. Then I bought some Pad Thai for dinner, said hello to my massage therapist who was there with a portable massage seat. I also chatted with a Reiki man. It all serves to make me feel a part of the world.
