This Week's Featured Product is Artichokes

California provides nearly all of the country's artichokes, and about 80% of these are grown in Monterey County, with Castroville proclaiming to be the Artichoke Capital of the World. The Green Globe variety artichoke is available almost year-round, but the frosts of winter concentrate its' flavor and adds a characteristic russet color to this thistle. Artichokes are often steamed, baked, or boiled and used for dips or salads. Discover this gem of California at your local farmers' market.

You can purchase artichokes from Northridge Farms or another of the local farmers selling artichokes.

Once you get your purchases home, check out our delicious recipes using artichokes.
