Looking for Kale in Stockholm...

Postby heyorpheus » Thu Apr 05, 2012 9:59 pm

I've looked everywhere. Where do you get your stash from? Is it a seasonal thing perhaps?

I have no suggestions for you but I'm sure someone will. On a related note, I rarely ever saw fresh leafy greens in Costa Rica except at a farmers market... It made me very appreciative of where I live. Anyway, Best wishes on finding your kale! :D

I don't think there's fresh kale available right now but you can usually get frozen chopped kale, good for soups. Look for "Grönkål".

Hope you're enjoying the Easter weekend in spite of the weather... :)

Interesting, due to climate I can see Stockholm not having fresh greens, but Costa Rica? It must be cultural preference.

I've been looking for kale a while myself without any success. I haven't been looking for frozen kale much cause I want to use fresh ones in smoothies.

I know nothing about Stockholm, but in my country fresh kale is definitely a seasonal vegetable. In wintertime you can find it at absolutely any supermarkt, but right now you can't find fresh kale anywhere.
Some stores do still have frozen kale, but fresh is so much better.
