Market Produce – Jan 16

potassium-potato2Potatoes are a very popular food source. Unfortunately, most people eat potatoes in the form of greasy French fries or potato chips, and even baked potatoes are typically loaded down with fats such as butter, sour cream, melted cheese and bacon bits. Such treatment can make even baked potatoes a potential contributor to a heart attack. However, by taking away the extra fat and deep frying, a baked potato once again becomes an exceptionally healthful, low calorie, high fiber food that offers significant protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer.

 

Here is what to expect at the market this week:
  • Bananas (South America and Organic)
  • Carrots (BC and Organic)
  • Broccoli (California and Organic)
  • Kabocha squash (BC)
  • Avocados (Mexico)
  • Royal Gala Apples (BC)
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes (BC)
  • Navel Oranges (California)
  • Green Cabbage (BC)
  • Kale (California)
  • Pink Zebra Lemons

So make sure to head down to this Saturday’s mobile market locations to stock up. We will be at Brant Villa from 10:30am to 12:30pm and Kensington Community Centre from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Take a look at our mobile market locations for more info on how to find us.
