Deadline for Application is September 15 2015 By MEAGAN WOHLBERG Kohlrabi. Some Yellowknife residents might not know how to pronounce it let alone cook it but the Yellowknife Farmers Market YKFM is hop- ing to change all that with its Kohlrabi Kraze event this week. The citys foremost agricultural initiative received an influx of the strange-looking green vegetable last week from Hay Rivers Indian Summers Market Gardens who were looking to unload the bounty of their abundant bumper crop. With over 300 lbs of extra kohlrabi unable to sell in Hay River YKFM president France Benoit decided to take the veggies off Indian Summers plate and sell them to the people of Yellowknife where local food is less abun- dant but greatly desired. Theyve got the volume and weve got the population Benoit said so its a good t. This weeks market on Tuesday evening will feature approximately 500 kohlrabi as the main stars of the show with individuals for sale for 1-3 bunches for sale at 4 kg cooked kohlrabi served by vendors and samples recipes and growing information for those unfamiliar with the vegetable. It will also be shared with local restaurants that will work it into their menus. Part of the brassica family kohlrabi is a rel- ative of broccoli and cabbage. When peeled it is similar to a large green radish and can be just as zesty. While many eat the vegetable raw either sliced with salt or grated in salad it can be cooked like broccoli or turnip roasted or prepared in soups. Though primarily dedicated to providing a space for the buying and selling of local produce the YKFM subscribes to a much larger agenda of promoting food security and has even drafted its own Yellowknife Food Charter outlining the current situation and vision for a sustainable food system in the NWT capital. Benoit said Kohlrabi Kraze is an important rst step in inter-settlement collaboration among NWT communities - one she hopes will continue as the growing season moves into full-on harvest.
