Deeply rooted food, close to home.
By: Shango Los (Mar 24, 2011)
I have been buying from Willie Greens / Jeff Martin for almost a decade now. When I was new to caring about produce and visiting the University Farmer's Market, Jeff would take the extra time to explain his produce to me, where it was from and why to choose one variety over another. He helped the appreciation for food grow in me. He has double cute ladies working the booth at the market now but I can still sense his care for the food every week.
I appreciate Willie Greens as a vendor too. I work for a small home delivered produce company and we buy his local, organic and vibrant produce to share with our customers. This is the opposite to mass produced corporate "organic." This is deep down nutritious food and my customers can tell. Also, because it doesn't have to travel very far, it is picked ripe and ready for the market, . Because of that, I know it tastes better, and without that harsh travel, I think it lasts longer in my fridge too.
I'm a big fan, sure. I even went to their big harvest fest last year on the farm with about 300 other customers, families and lovers. I think it is OK to admit that and still write a review. I mean, wouldn't you like to love your produce as much too?!
