Farming the urban forest not only leaves fingernails and hands in haggard condition, but it also limits your dining options to used tires and tossed-aside tax receipts. Today’s Groupon gets you the good kind of locally produced food: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh produce and locally produced groceries, plus a wrap ($5.50 value), from Kim’s Produce, a $25.50 total value.
The green grocer sources local and sustainable sustenance from area farms and gourmet suppliers to offer locally harvested consumers from a new Midtown storefront. Local produce harvested bi-weekly from the Eastern Market is available for the picking or juggling alongside perishables and dry goods from local and socially responsible vendors. Stock up on organic spices to season your award-winning mole sauce, or gift a selection of gourmet teas and coffee beans from The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company to the chronically thirsty member of your acting troupe. Creamy confections and rBST-free dairy delights from Michigan’s Caulder Dairy will delight dairietarians and provide the perfect complement to the crunchy breakfast crumbles of Randy’s Granola.
The 1,200-square-foot locally owned grocery boasts bright green walls and a homey atmosphere, making it an ideal place to enjoy the wrap ($5.50) included with your Groupon. After a shopping trip, grab a chicken Caesar wrap for a hand-held meal on the go, or gift the veggie wrap to the herbivore close to your heart. You can also use part of the Groupon's $20 toward cheesecake ($3.99), smoothies ($3.99), or more. Venture down to Midtown and fill your handbasket with healthy local fare.
- …a brightly painted storefront where they sell fresh produce, organic spices, and milk and eggs from the Calder Dairy, along with a few prepared foods, including two soups daily. – Molly Abraham, Hour
- Calder dairy milk is maybe the best prize here. (Best milk around, tastes totally different than regular non-local milk.) ...All the vegetables look well-selected...nice & pretty & crisp. – Betty B., Yelp
