Micro Greens are stealing the hearts of the locals!
Every week, we set up at our local farmers market. We educate the locals, give free samples and sell freshly cut microgreens on site to our customers. We encourage parents on the nutritional value of microgreens and have found out that kids are more inclined to eat these tiny but mighty veggies because of its simplicity, taste and beauty!
What are micro greens?
MicroGreens (micro greens) are a tiny form of young edible greens produced from vegetable, herb or other plants. They range in size from 1″ to 1 ½” long, including the stem and leaves. A MicroGreen has a single central stem which has been cut just above the soil line during harvesting. It has two fully developed cotyledon leaves and usually one pair very small, partially developed true leaves. The typical stem and leaf configuration for micro greens is about 1” to 1½” in height, and ½” to 1“ in width across the top. MicroGreens can have surprisingly intense flavors considering their small size though not as strong as mature greens and herbs.
MicroGreens are used as a fresh flavor ingredient primarily in fine dining restaurants. These restaurants place a strong emphasis on both the creative presentation and flavor of their dishes. MicroGreens’ delicate, fresh appearance adds beauty and dimension combined with a range of distinct flavor elements.
