Not only is this peppery green a favorite for our salads and sandwiches, but eating arugula can actually enhance one’s athletic performance by improving muscle oxygenation during exercise. Use as a substitute for lettuce on sandwiches; prepare wilted arugula with garlic and serve with rockfish; make a simple salad with pears, blue cheese, and dried cranberries. Comes in a plastic bag.

Radicle Farm

Utica, NY

Christopher Washington, Jim Livengood and Tony Gibbons founded Radicle Farm to explore the depths of fresh, flavorful, and intriguing salad greens. Their journey has included years spent experimenting with countless seed varieties and growing methods in their New York and New Jersey greenhouses, conferring with New York City's top chefs, and partnering with like-minded, progressive farmers to find the very best leafy greens (and sometimes tomatoes and cucumbers). The result is nutrient dense leafy greens, microgreens, and edible flowers that are bursting with flavor, color and freshness. Radicle has chosen their growing facilities – 60,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space in New Jersey and upstate New York – intentionally. They employ rural and urban farmers, maximize the growing potential of otherwise forgotten spaces, and provide fresh greens to customers in four major metropolitan regions within 300 miles of their greenhouses.

Store unwashed in plastic container. Place a paper towel in the container if your fridge gets too humid, and keep in the crisper drawer for up to 10 days--it will be most flavorful if used in 3 to 6 days. Wash before consuming.
