Buying groceries in New York City can be a pain: shopping at the Farmers’ Market may not fit with your work schedule and waiting in a three mile line winding through the Trader Joe’s produce section is not the optimal use of a Friday night. Fortunately, due to new technology and its relationship to food, Good Eggs can help change the way New Yorkers shop for farm fresh groceries.
When researching CSAs to get our produce from, we discovered Good Eggs, an online farmers market. Unlike having a weekly bundle of produce that will mostly end up in compost later, Good Eggs allows you to choose exactly what items you want, and schedule a delivery or pick up later in the week. Better yet, all of the food is grown or produced locally, and harvested after you order it—you can’t get fresher than that!
On their continued mission to support the growing urban farm culture and sustainable farming methods, Slow Food Miami brings you the “Grow Your Dinner” event under the stars in a collaborative effort with Green Railway Organic Workshop (GROW) to host the event. Taking place on Saturday, November 12th, at the Workshop’s urban farm, the dinner will include a homemade Vietnamese dinner made by GROW’s Director of Education, Thi Square, and an exclusive tour of the Workshop’s burgeoning urban farm.
