We love microgreens! Eat some every day!
Located in Arlington, Virginia, Roots 'n Shoots is a woman/minority/family-owned, small business that provides microgreens and garden plants for the DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland area.
When Paula retired, she started growing microgreens for family and friends. For a long time they had noticed that even people who know about the great flavor and nutritional value of microgreens didn't have them in their refrigerator all the time. To us, microgreens are even more important to have on hand than salad greens because of their flavor, versatility in meal prep, and nutritional value. During the COVID-19 pandemic, and knowing the immunity-boosting properties of microgreens, our family decided it was time to open Roots 'n Shoots.
We're on a mission to get microgreens in every refrigerator in Northern Virginia and are particularly interested in making sure families with any food insecurity have access to these nutrient-dense veggies.
Thank you Northern Virginia for supporting your hyperlocal CSA! Or should we say Community Supported "Micro" Agriculture model? We are proud that the more we sell, the more we are able to provide to local food pantries, and you make that happen.
