An impromptu visit to Wednesday’s farmers’ market in the South Park blocks turned up several produce items I have never come across before.

Pineapple tomatillos. A small relative of the green variety, these are sweet and taste unsurprisingly like pineapple.

A bushel of chickpeas. These can be eaten raw or sautéed in olive oil.

  1. How many farmers’ markets are there in your neighborhood? I have never seen any of the above grown or offered anywhere before.
