Alex Weiser is one of the most popular farmers at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market. He is known for his many varieties of potatoes but he also brings seasonal specialty items each week. Right now he has purple Brussels sprouts which are a cross between red or purple cabbage and traditional Brussels sprouts. He says they are sweeter and less bitter than traditional sprouts.
