Coined as “bringing the go-local movement to life”, Vancouverites can now purchase their own fresh greens year-round at Living Produce Aisle (66 E. Cordova St). With its official opening taking place this weekend, take a trip into Gastown to this indoor marketplace offering fresh greens, herbs, vegetables, raw shakes and wheatgrass shots.
Starting from local entrepreneur Tarren Wolfe’s vision of creating Urban Cultivator, Living Produce Aisle houses 20 Urban Cultivator Commercial units so local produce is literally grown in-store. With plans to supply fresh herbs and greens to local restaurants such as Nicli Antica Pizzeria and Vicino Pasteria & Deli, Living Produce will grow over 1000 pounds of greens a month in perfect conditions year round.
If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, be a ‘locavore’ and indulge in a healthy diet, this indoor farm-market-like grocer may be an exact fit.
