Farmers market report: Carrots in a rainbow of colors are in season, and a recipe

Farmers market report: Carrots in a rainbow of colors are in season, and a recipe

What’s in season: Though carrots are one of those staples that can be found year-round in supermarkets, winter is the best time to find them at farmers markets, as colder weather makes for crisper and sweeter roots. Another advantage to sourcing your carrots seasonally is that you can often find them in a lot more colors than, say, orange. Look for rainbow carrots, which come in purple, scarlet, deep orange, as well as white. Recently we found White Satin, Purple Haze and Nantes varieties at McGrath Family Farms’ stand in Santa Monica.

What’s just left: Swiss chard is beginning to taper off.
