Wondering where I could find these vegetables? Any organic sources?

    Dunno about organic mustard greens, but fresh and canned ones are available at Asian stores and supermarkets (ie: T&T, H-Mart, etc).

    Turnip .... as in the regular variety:

    .... or Asian (daikon) ?

      Mustard and turnip greens are both favourites at local farmers' markets. I live on Vancouver Island and could tell you where to get them here, but I take it you want recs in the lower mainland? I think you have several year round farmers' markets, no? Unfortunately, neither crop is really in season at this time of year, though with the mild winter we've had so far you might be able to find some mustard greens.

        Just bought some beautiful baby mustard greens at the Victoria downtown public market yesterday. I see you have a winter farmers' market at the east end of Nat Bailey stadium, every Saturday, 10 AM - 2 PM. Bet you could find some good mustard greens there! Good luck.

          Haha, good to know. Wish I could get some good ones, but I'm not willing to go to Victoria for it.

            As I said in my earlier post, there are year round farmers' markets in Vancouver, such as the one at Nat Bailey stadium that I mention above.
