At Rosslyn's Pentagon City Costco, you can now buy a two-pound bag of Rosemont Farms fresh Brussels sprouts for a mere $4.79 (plus 12 cents tax). Two pounds of sprouts is a lot of sprouts. We recommend microwaving the sprouts for about 2.5 minutes in a ceramic cereal bowl covered with another ceramic dish. Mix the sprouts into a pile of quinoa, sauteed mushrooms, and freshly ground flax seeds for an excellent dish.
These Rosemont Farms Brussels sprouts are grown in Mexico. Unfortunately, little information is readily available about the persons who actually grow the sprouts. Good work, unknown farmers!
Rosemont Farms is a produce-marketing company founded in Florida in 1999. C.H. Robinson WorldWide, Inc. acquired Rosemont Farms in 2009. C.H. Robinson is one of the world's largest third-party-logistics providers and had gross revenues of $9.3 billion in 2010.
We appreciate the efforts of everyone who has helped to provide our neighborhood with Brussels sprouts.
