Market Report 5 MIN, 53 SEC

Laura Avery is the market manager at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market. This week she talks with Luis Jaime of JF Organic Farms about his red okra and green okra. The red okra will lose its color if cooked, but will become a darker red if quickly blanched.

Plus, Corina Weibel, chef-owner of Canelé, is shopping for Romanesco squash from Coleman Family Farm. She likes to slice them the size of thick coins, so when sauted they can get crispy on the outside and stay tender on the inside. She also marinates them in a vinaigrette and serves them raw.
