I just gave a talk entitled "One man's Weed is another man's Herb" for our local Master Gardener group. One of the "weeds" that is growing everywhere in my garden now is Purslane. IN my research, I was amazed to learn that purslane has the most Omega -3 fatty acids of any leafy vegetable!
Are any of you selling purslane at market? I read that it is showing up more at Farmers' markets and am thinking about bringing it to mine with some recipes. How much should I sell it for?
I took lambs quarters [chenopodium album] a couple weeks ago and offered at $1 bunch but had no takers. Kind of surprised a few people tho' at seeing "weeds" for sale at the market lol! So I educate people on how much more nutritious it is than spinach. LQ has 309 mg of calcium!
I passed out recipe sheets at my "weed" talk and several said they were going to try some of the recipes - most notably the Lamb's Quarters Quiche and the Purslane -cucumber salad
I would like to hear from any other marketers who have offered stuff like this at market.
