Microgreens are truly a hidden secret of nature. They have unmatched flavor and potency much higher than that of their larger counterparts, plus 10-15 times the nutrient density.
Vigeo Gardens — an agricultural company located in Downtown Akron, OH — is our microgreen go-to. Their mission is to reconnect people to the origins of their food and to cut farm-to-fork wastage by ensuring that responsible practices are always followed.
Their process starts with non-GMO seeds and an ultra-clean environment. Every plant is grown in either hydroponics or all-natural soil. And, the entire farm is located in a re-purposed tire factory that runs on the most efficient utility schemes available.
Vigeo can operate anywhere that has access to electricity and running water, turning any space into a high volume, sustainable farm that uses less water and electricity and creates less refuse.
Microgreens can be blended into our Market District salad mixes, into soups, used as garnishes, to top burgers, sandwiches, wraps or in this spectacular sandwich brought to us by Chef Crystal…
