Looking for something different? Cal Vanoni from Sprawling River Farm specializes in obscure and hard-to-find ingredients such as heirloom variety potatoes, Romanesco, Sunchokes, Pepperwood Nuts and Collard Greens. A few current notables at Sprawling River’s booth: Mashua, one of the signature “Lost Crops of the Incas, is similar to a nasturtium. Its leaves and flowers are tasty in salads. Oca has cloverlike leaves and yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers are edible and make great additions to salads. The Styrian Pumpkin has bright yellow, coarse textured, tasty and sugary pumpkin flesh. The seeds can be lightly toasted or eaten raw and uncooked. Don’t miss this unique farmer on the market this Sunday.

Sprawling River Farm- a great place to find unique & obscure ingredients.
