AeroFarms announced earlier this week that they would be opening a roadside farmstand to give the local community a chance to try their locally grown leafy greens. Selling at the astoundingly low price of $6/lb., customers are encouraged to stop by and continue to get fresh greens even while local farmers markets and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs have ended for the winter.
“We have been getting great feedback on the quality of our product and we are now in the process of selling. We are very keen to be part of the Newark community and we are kicking off a few things,” said AeroFarms Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer, Marc Oshima.
