Less Common Green Things at QVM
Two stalls at the Queen Victoria Market have some hard to find green things. If you have been wanting to make a green papaya salad like you had in Thailand then head over to Shed C at the corner with Queen St as they have very green papaya just perfect for the task as well as an array of Asian greens, including very fine okra and fresh coconuts. For a recipe for green papaya salad here is a link to Luke Nguyen preparing one.
Shed B, stall 61-3 has beautifully presented produce with less common varieties, including golden beetroot, every colour of carrot, kohlrabi, red and green cabbage, great herbs and hard to find broccoli rapa. See link to Guy Grossi’s orecchiette con cime di rapa (or broccoli rabe)
