SoWa Farmers Market

SoWa Vendor Spotlight: We Grow Microgreens

The SoWa Farmers market, located at 500 Harrison Ave, is more than just a market, it's a place where local farmers and specialty food makers come together to feed Boston.  And goodness, we're a hungry city!

We Grow Microgreens LLC has become a staple here at SoWa, for it's sustainable growing practices and local notoriety out of their Roslindale greenhouse.  Lisa Evans and Tim Smith are more than just urban growers, they're cultivating the perfect urban crop. 

We Grow Microgreens is changing the way we eat by providing the South End with delicious and highly nutritious microgreens.  What is a microgreen you ask?  As the fine writers at EdibleBoston.com describe them, "they're ubiquitous and cute", "adorable" and becoming a "favorite embellishment for many chefs" including you at home.  Think tiny sprigs of arugula, pea shoots, basil and other garnishes that simply tie the plate together and you've got microgreens.  According to Smith, microgreens were all the rage in the 1960s and '70s, when people simply threw some seeds in a mason jar, add water and voila!  The seeds would sprout, making the perfect garnish for sandwiches, salads and texture to meals.  That trend is back and better than ever.

Not only are they "adorable" but these delicious morsels are insanely high in nutrients.  Just check out the vast list of health benefits from noshing down on these greens.  Just ask Evans who says "once you've gone micro, there's no going back".

SoWa Vendor Spotlight: Nutty Life

Nutty Life is passionate about bringing you delicious nut milks made with only fresh, organic ingredients.  Their milks are full of love and free of additives, gluten, and dairy.

Shortly after Nutty Life founder Caroline's 21st birthday, she became lactose intolerant.  She started drinking the un-refrigerated almond milk found at the grocery store.  As she grew more health conscious, Caroline became curious as to how the almond milk she was buying didn't need to be refrigerated.  After extensive research, she learned information about the ingredients found in these milks that blew her away! For example, most leading brands of almond milk contain only 2% almonds. On the contrary, each jar of Nutty Life contains 35% nuts! Their milks are full-bodied, filling, and mouth-watering good!

Nutty Life is proud to introduce Boston's best additive-free nut milk delivery service. They can be found locally on the shelves at Bee's Knees Supply Company in Allston, MA (1316 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02134) and are proudly making the nut milk for Gracenote Coffee near South Station in Boston.
