South Asian/Indian Vegetables
Good Afternoon All,
I know there is a forum for market gardening but I don't see much there regarding South Asian/Indian vegetables. This year, I am growing tinda, gongura, lemon grass, Malabar spinach and some other vegetables that are common in the South Asian/Indian cuisine. Do any of you in this forum sell your produce at local farmers markets and if so can you give me an idea of how you go about pricing these commodities? I am trying to cater to what I see as a generous opporunity to make available locally grown and fresh produce for several of the communities here in the Kansas City area. I have been growing vegetables that are common in Hispanic, Southeast Asian, Chinese, Hmong and Italian cuisine and as a lover of much of the cuisine of India, I have started growing those vegetables but I notice a lack of these vegetables in the farmers markets. If any of you would be so kind as to give me some feedback, I would be most appreciative. I have bought seeds and a curry plant (my tree is now about 2 feet tall and made it through the winter!) from Seeds of India and I like the varieties that company has. I'm also growing long beans again. I have had a number of requests for this bean and I too enjoy its flavor. Anyway, thanks everyone, in advance. I hope to be hearing from someone soon!
