Albany- The cooks at Carter's Grill never go a day without serving collard greens. In fact, for New year's they will prepare nearly 45 pounds of the leafy vegetable, but they won't be alone.
Walter Henderson, better known as "The Green Man on the corner of Gordon and Slappey," is preparing for one of his most busiest days of the year.
"People have been buying more this year you can tell by the way they spend money. Last year they mostly had ones and fives, this year they've got twenties," laughs Henderson.
Many believe that extra green in their pockets, came from the green on their plates. Collards on January 1st are supposed to bring wealth for the New Year.
"Plenty, plenty of green money with large numbers on the money," says Caroline Holley.
"I could eat greens every day, but I'm definitely going eat them New Years," Henderson adds.
The Green Man cuts his greens fresh from the ground every morning to make sure his customers get the freshest greens in town.
"I always come up here and buy from Mr. Walt because he has the best greens in town. They're very good. Look at this bunch beautiful," admits Rosa Reid.
Henderson promises to have plenty more beautiful bunches for anyone in search of good fortune for the new year.
Not only are Henderson's greens fresh, but you can get them almost every day of the year. He worked Christmas Day and says he'll be there New Year's day as well.
