❁ Choose greens that look crisp. Avoid wilted or yellowing leaves and browned stalks.
❁ Greens may be fresher and cost less when they are in season. Most are available spring through summer or fall. Kale, mustard greens and collard greens are available during the winter months.
❁ Try farm stands or farmers markets for local greens in season.
❁ Frozen spinach is a good value but other frozen greens often cost more than fresh.
