Event's DetailsJoin us during store hours on Saturday, March 17, 2018, as we feature local Quitman producers of Microgreens! Michael and Samuel will be in the Milk House from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM to showcase their Microgreens and answer any questions you may have.
Microgreen is the universal name for almost any green vegetable or herb that has edible leaves and is harvested at the coteleydon growth stage - the stage when the first set of true leaves sprout. The coteleydon growth stage comes after the germination and sprouting stages but before a plant fully develops its root and leaf structures.
While Microgreens have been available for quite some time in health food stores and some specialty farmers markets, microgreens have recently become more widely available in large supermarkets. Their increasing popularity is due partly to their ability to pack a lot of flavor in a small amount, as well as their flexibility in being included in a dish. Mix them to create a small, flavorful and delicately textured salad, or use only one or two greens to give a plate a final touch.
We look forward to having you visit the store and learn all about the nutrient-packed little greens! See you on St. Patrick's Day!
