KALE in Belgium

Question

What is KALE (The healthy stuff) called in Dutch/French?

Do they have something about the same as in the US, or something similar?

Do they have it in most shops selling vegetables?
If not, which ones?

It's called boerenkool or chou frisé. I get it at the market. I don't think I've seen it in the supermarket. But perhaps the better veggie shop?

As ClaireDD says. You can get it in most big Delhaize and Carrefours, but not usually during the summer months - it's a winter vegetable.

The bigger markets will be selling plants - Halle, Heverlee, Wavre off the top of my head. grows easily, obviously protect from slugs and possibly net as the Butterflies are still with us.

This is Curly Kale, not Sea Kale.

Marie's Garden in Overijse, you can pick your own kale.
Lots of bio shops will have it too.
