Buying produce in the fall

The few tomatoes left at the produce market are mealy and spotted, but all sorts of wonderful things have replaced them.

This was my haul on my last big produce shopping trip: root vegetables, big bags stuffed full of spinach, and cabbage. There are great mountains of cabbage, 1 KM, or about 75 cents for a head of cabbage.

I find myself buying stuff that I don't recognize. The vendor called this "black turnip" or "black chard" or possibly "black beet"--my handy dictionary is not so handy with vegetable names.

I'm pretty sure it's rutabaga, but not positive. Anyway, it tastes wonderful roasted with turnips, beets, and carrots.
