Seasonal Spotlight: Cabbage
Why Eat Cabbage?
Cabbage is in season fall through spring in Solano County. Both red and green cabbage are a good source of fiber and low in calories. Red cabbage is higher in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and iron than green cabbage and contains anthocyanins, which are antioxidants found in purple fruits and vegetables. Green cabbage is higher in Vitamin K than red cabbage.
How to Prepare It?
There are so many options for cabbage beyond your standard cole slaw! Try making fermented cabbage in sauerkraut or kimchi. Use it raw as a topping on a variety of dishes, or try it roasted or sauteed.
Join us for upcoming cooking classes that highlight cabbage.
Where to Find It?
- at your local farm stands and open farmers markets
- in your Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box from local farms

News and Updates
The weekend of Dec. 19 was just past the four month mark from the LNU Lightning Complex Fire that ripped through Vacaville’s rural area. Instead of looking at the destruction and blackened hills with a feeling of loss and overwhelming grief, the weekend offered the first glimmers of hope.
