We go to the Open Market every Tuesday morning. Farmers Markets are called Open Markets in Hawaii. I don't know why. Is it because it's out in the open? No idea. It begins at 6:30 AM in our area, stays open for an hour and moves on to their next location in Waipahu. In the winter, it's still dark when we get there and often have to bring our flashlight.
These are our usual purchases although we also like to get watercress, ginger, napa cabbage and a few other things there. Our dinners are full of vegetables which we really enjoy. My mother pan fries the cabbages and cooks the burdock (cut into slivers) with a teriyaki-chili sauce (that I have to learn how to prepare). The daikon is slivered into her miso soup (that I have to learn to prepare) and the leaves are stir fried. The cucumbers are pickled with vinegar and something (that I have to learn to prepare).
It's really wonderful having a personal chef in the house. It's amazing how quickly Art and I got used to having somebody take over the kitchen.
