IME broccoli is hardy to somewhat colder than 28F; more like the low
20's, though it may depend on the variety.
Cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, radish, etc. should all be fine -- as
Antoine says cold weather improves the flavor on brassicas; also most
lettuce, carrots, and some other stuff will take some frost.

Fresh-market organic produce, small scale
