Our produce department features several varieties of organic & conventionally grown root veggies, many from local farms. Root vegetables provide color & nutrition throughout the winter months. They’re rich in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A. And, of course, they’re all great sources of folate, a B vitamin that builds cells.
Root vegetables include beets (which have several varieties), carrots, turnips, parsnips, and rutabaga.
Most root veggies can be peeled with a potato peeler, but the more fibrous varieties may require a knife. Just follow the contours and you’re set! Root vegetables can be stored refrigerated for up to a month, generally, and they are particularly versatile. Here are a few delicious recipes featuring root vegetables that you’re sure to enjoy.
