Everything I've ever read in my years of gardening and cooking says that the green part of the potato "may not be" safe to eat.
I keep my potatoes and onons in stacked wooden crates in a cool corner by my back door. Ideally, it could be a bit darker, but since it's just the two of us, I don't buy large quantities of things like that any more.
If you have some potatoes that sprout, throw them out in the compost pile, and you'll have new potatoes this spring!
