Fresh fruit and veggies in a jar, thanks to Chicago-based Farmer’s Fridge, offer crafted salads and snacks in vending machines around the city. Superfoods, nuts and seeds mix with all kinds of greens to present unique flavors and extravagant color palettes. Imagine organic spinach, Israeli couscous, roasted butternut squash, fennel, blue cheese, dried cherries, pecans and maple-sherry vinaigrette, all neatly layered in recyclable jars, stocked in vending machines first thing in the morning. Sourcing ingredients directly from farmers (and then donating leftovers), Farmer’s Fridge is committed to one mission: good food that’s good for you and the environment.
