Spicy Fiesta Microgreens
Add a hit of spicy green goodness with this mix of organic radish and arugula microgreens from San Giovanni’s Farm, which keeps their production low-waste by using spent microgreen potting soil as a compost in their field crops. Use these microgreens in salads, as a topping on tacos, or to lend a boost of nutrient-dense flavor to your morning bowl of savory oatmeal.
Contents: 3 ounces mixed microgreens (radish and arugula)
Producer: San Giovanni's Farm
Location: Woodbine, Maryland
The Barrow family named their farm after their grandfather and gardener extraordinaire, Giovanni Marino. The farm is certified organic and even goes beyond USDA organic standards by adhering to the Real Organic Project’s standards. San Giovanni’s Farm primarily grows greens, microgreens, vegetables, flowers, and herbs, which they sell directly to customers in the DMV. Their use of the spent microgreen soil has become a big part of their fertility program for the field vegetables, helping to build healthy soil for generations to come.
Nutritional value: Microgreens are flavorful little powerhouses that contain up to 40 percent higher levels of nutrients (especially vitamins K, C and E, plus lutein and beta-carotene) than their mature counterparts.
