Veggie sales are back and microgreens are on the menu

Want fresh veggies? Email Libby Schmit, schmem01@uwgb.edu to get on the distribution list and to place an order. Supplies are limited. On sale this week, microgreens, also known as micro herbs or vegetable confetti, are rich in flavor and add a welcome splash of color to a variety of dishes. Despite their small size, they pack a nutritional punch, often containing higher nutrient levels than more mature vegetable greens. This makes them a good addition to any diet! Microgreens are great to toss on just about anything. Incorporate them on top of pizzas, salads, sandwiches, fresh spring rolls, pasta, bagels and much more!

AVAILABLE THIS WEEK:
Spicy Microgreen – $5/bag
With radish and arugula in the mix these (mildly) spicy greens are sure to add a lot of flavor to anything you add it to.

Mild Microgreen- $5/bag
A slightly milder taste with all the same nutritional benefits! A great option for those who want to pair the microgreens with an already flavorful dish.
