First ever winter market in Cambridge tomorrow!
Bright Future Farms is very excited to participate in the first ever indoor Winter-Spring Farmers Market in Cambridge, MN! It starts tomorrow and is being held in City Center Mall from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
We'll be there with freshly harvested, hydroponically grown microgreens. For those of you not familiar with hydroponics, it means we grow without soil. We also grow without harmful chemicals :) For those of you not familiar with microgreens, they are miniature plants packed with nutrients and flavor. Because the plants are harvested when they are so small, their nutrient content is much more concentrated. What exactly am I saying? Research has shown microgreens can be:
* 4 to 40 times more nutritious than their adult counterpart
* higher in vitamin and antioxidant levels
* higher in macro minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium)
* higher in micro minerals (iron, zinc and copper)
* beneficial to gut health
* conducive to weight loss
* effective in reduction of inflammation
Here's information on each of the varieties I currently grow...
Come and check us out, as well as each of the other vendors at the market. I know there will be amazing baked goods, canned goods, crafts, and much more. Bring your questions and take samples home with you if you'd like to try the microgreens.
Have an awesome weekend and stay safe and healthy!
