We all know that we SHOULD incorporate more fresh veggies and fruit into our daily routine. But, why choose microgreens? Trust us, they are not just a side dish for your baby carrots and are more than a platform for your mini cucumbers.

First off, microgreens are grown in soil. They’re absorbing minerals from the soil as they begin to mature but are usually harvested before they are 2 weeks “old”. This makes the nutrient density high while preserving their delicate flavors and textures.

Secondly, they reportedly contain up to 6 times more vitamins and phytonutrients than their fully mature counterparts. If you are looking to increase your vitamin intake by food based methods, these are a great choice. Microgreens contain vitamins C, E, and beta carotene.

These are just 2 of the reasons CSA FARMERS MARKET is offering you microgreens from Barefoot Farm, LLC in Otisville. You can choose MILD or SPICY and bring the farm right to your kitchen!
