Jeff from Phil’s Dills at the Hollywood Farmers Market

Featured Vendor: Phil’s Dills

Pickles, pickles, and more pickles! Several large tubs of fresh, homemade dill pickles line the table of this vendor. Phil uses local ingredients from Carroll County to create several types of dill pickles, including fire garlic, sweet and spicy, and kosher. Ask for a taste of each of the pickles, so you’ll be completely  satisfied with your purchase when you get it home.

New Vendor: Razan Center for Massage & Health  

Come to the market on Saturday and get a free, 10-minute massage from a very local massage therapist, located on Niagara Road. Information about the company’s services will be available in addition to this mini-massage, and those who want to extend their massages past 10 minutes can do so by paying just $1 per minute. What a way to start the day! So if you’re looking for services like that Toronto Wellness Massage Experience, then a site like exotic massage toronto may provide you the details to their nearest service.

Featured Produce: Kale

One health writer at called kale the “queen of greens” and “a nutritional powerhouse.” Not only does it provide significant health benefits, it’s also delicious when cooked right (like steamed or stir-fried)—or when it’s not cooked like in the salad below. The writer, who happens to be a nutritionist, says: “One cup of chopped kale contains 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and a whopping 684% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals, copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.”

However, nobody’s perfect and neither is kale. According to the article, those taking anticoagulants such as warfarin should consult their doctors about eating it because the high level of vitamin K may interfere with the drugs. At high doses it may interfere with the absorption of calcium.

Recipe of the Week: Raw Kale Salad
