City Roots has one of the largest microgreens operations in the Southeast, with over 9000 square feet dedicated to production. We grow nearly a dozen varieties year-round and seasonally, and sell them to retailers, chefs, and distributors throughout the region.
Microgreens are "micro" shoots of a parent vegetable, packed with premium flavor and nutrition. Recent studies have found micros to be more nutrient and mineral dense than their mature counterparts. Bright in color and flavor, they make a great garnish, topping, or nutritional supplement to any dish!
