True Leaf Microgreens, Pottstown, PA – 17 miles

If you are trying to โ€œshop small,โ€ microgreens might be an ideal place to start.

True Leaf Microgreens, owned and operated by Eric Franks in northern Chester County, is one of the more recognizable locally-grown items carried at Kimberton Whole Foods.

โ€œWhether it is for our family or our community, providing fresh, nutrient-dense greens gives us a feeling of joy and purpose.โ€

Their offerings include the ever-popular mixed salad and arugula varieties in 5 oz clamshells. They also sell sweet pea shoots, baby kale, micro basil and micro cilantro. True Leaf can be found at Lundale Farm, a 520ย acreย farm in Pottstown, PA.ย The greenhouse is part of aย sustainable farming community that is a place of inspiration, innovation and opportunity for new farmers, landowners, and others committed to locally grown food.

Mixed salad and arugula are available year-round, since they are grown in climate-controlled greenhouses. These tiny edible plants – snipped when they grow an inch or two high – are sought after by many chefs for their nutrient density and many culinary uses. You can grow your own greens while utilizing very little space (e.g. windowsill).
