Home » Food » Cookstown Greens Seasonal Vegetables…$10 of Goodness.

Being a food sales rep, means that I have the opportunity to shop while I work. (shhh- lets keep this a secret).

One day while visiting Pusateris Fruit Market (497 Church Street) I stumbled upon a bag of Cookstown Greens Seasonal Heirloom Vegetables. It’s not cheap but when you eat every single vegetable in the bag – then nothing goes to waste. Plus Im supporting a local business. So after a few seconds of comtemplation, I bought the bag.

A Bag of Goodness!!

When I got home, I roasted them and then continued to buy this bag of vegetables almost every week throughout the entire winter. Then – poof –  they disappeared over the spring/summer. Sadness. However this past weekend, I discovered that they are back in season again. I scooped up a bag for $10 and then went home immediately to make them.

This is how I prepared them:

a) washed them

b) cut them in half

c) put them on a shallow baking pan.

d) added a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper .

e) 425 degree over for 45 minutes.


OMG…these vegetables are dynamite. I hope you get a chance to try this “bag of goodness”  one day soon. It’s SO worth it.

    Hi!! I am the production manager at Cookstown Greens.
    Thanks for the great plug! I just got home from doing 130 of these veg bags for all our retail outlets. We also do another 40 or so for the Brickworks. Your picture looks great! We are also branching out into soups and stock. Please contact me through the website, I would love to get you some of our other products to try. You could be our “tester” I have been trying to launch “COOKSTOWN BABY” as all our children have been raised on our sweet healthy veg, and we would like to spread the wealth.
    If you can come to the brickworks farmers market we would like to reward you for your support.
    Say Hi to Tony at Church for me, he is a great guy!
    Thanks again,
