Our markets look radishing this week!

Fresh & Local

Daikon radishes are a large radish variety available at our market, ranging from six to 15 inches in length! Their flavor is fresh and sweet with a hint of spice. They’re high in nutrient content, with proven benefits to respiratory and digestive health. You may also know daikons as white radishes, Oriental radishes, or Asian radishes. Whatever you decide to call them, be sure to try them!
