Making a Big Difference with Little Leaves

Microgreens Ohio logo 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.

New Market District Microgreen Varieties:

  • Arugula — Robust, peppery flavor; a chef favorite!
  • Microgreen Blend — Arugula, radish, mustard, kale, bok choi, broccoli, purple cabbage and pea shoots.
  • Pea Shoots — Delicate tendrils with rich, buttery flavor
