Update your Grocery List to Include Seasonal Produce from Harris Teeter’s Farmers Market

Farmers Market ImageCharlotte, NC - Spring is in the air and, in Harris Teeter’s Farmers Market, one of the best things about spring is the vegetables. Delicious, nutritious and bursting with flavor, seasonal produce can brighten up dull dishes and give you a vitamin boost as well. Celebrate spring this year by trying a few seasonal vegetables available in Harris Teeter’s Farmers Market.

• Asparagus: A cup of this delicious green vegetable provides approximately 260 mcg of folate, and it is also a great source of much needed fiber and vitamin C.  To incorporate asparagus into a great dish, try Harris Teeter’s Steamed Garlic Vegetables recipe available here.

• Radish: Along with other members of the cruciferous family (cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts) radishes contain cancer-protective properties. If you are not sure you like the flavor of a radish, ease into it by preparing Tilapia with Cucumber Radish Relish.  It is a delicious entrée that goes well with Chocolate Raspberry Tart for dessert! 

• Watercress: Full of antioxidants, vitamin A, C, beta carotene, B vitamins, folate and calcium, watercress is a highly nutritious green that should not be overlooked! This low calorie, tasty green should be a staple of all your spring salads or can be used as a garnish to decorate any main course!

Peas, artichokes and sweet onions are also delicious vegetables available this time of year and by adding fresh vegetables to your daily diet you will be making sure you and your family are getting all the vitamins, minerals and fiber you need!
