Cabbage.

It’s one of those foods you either love, or hate.

But don’t be too quick to choose a side – wait until you try Miriam Farrington’s red cabbage pickle. 

She will demonstrate the dish during the Mercury’s Facebook livestream at 2pm on Thursday.

The technique can be applied to other types of vegetables as well.

The market starts at 2pm and has all of the usual fruit and vegetables – including oranges, and honey, olives, bread and pastries, chicken and eggs.
