Agricultural Fact Day: Collard Greens Collard greens are one of the more affordable vegetables in terms of average U.S. price per edible cup (chopped and cooked). Amomg the cruciferous vegetables, cabbage turned out to be less expensive than collard greens. It is the 4th greatest amount of antioxidant capacity related to overall dietary intake among 12 nutrient-rich foods in the study by Economic Research Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2011. Collard greens can lower blood cholesterol levels. You can read more about collard greens at http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=138 The Farmers Market is every Saturday and in case you were wondering our farmers do offer cruciferous vegetables like collard greens!

This week's #FeatureFriday is Emily Patton of Shady Hollow Honey! ⁣ ⁣ We began beekeepers in 2011 after hearing about the decline in bee populations. We started with two hives just out of curiosity to see if we would be successful. We have since expanded to around 70 hives located in Tuscaloosa, Coker and Moundville. We love being able to bring our observation hive to the farmers market during spring and summer months to help educate both kids and adults. As strange as it sounds, beekeeping is a form of stress relief for us. You have to remain calm while working on the bees to avoid unnecessary stings. ⁣ ⁣ This is the perfect time of year to stock up on some local honey, to reap all of the health benefits it can bring you! Come by the market this Saturday from 7am-noon!
