Farmers’ Market Profiles: Kind Organics

October 23, 2011

Ah, another Sunday, and this month that means another Farmers’ Market Profile! Today I’m highlighting Kind Organics, a small farm located forty minutes north of Toronto that specializes in micro greens, sprouts, salad blends, and more. They started in 1999 just doing sprouts, but now they offer an impressive range of delectable, edible greenery.

I’ve known about Kind Organics for a while now, and what I like going there most for is their sprouts (which make the perfect addition to one of my Colossal Confetti Salads). Kind offers a wide variety of sprout options, ranging from their crunchy bean mix (my personal fave) to their spicy lentil mix (another favorite) to the unique broccoli brassica to their “Ancient Eastern” or “Flavour Fusion” mixes. Each bag runs for $5, but they are packed to the brim with sprouts—more than enough to last a week’s worth of salads, at least for me.

But Kind does so much more than just bean sprouts. They also sell buckwheat and sunflower sprouts…

…and these cute little pea shoots!

They offer bigger greens as well. Here, for example, are their swiss chard and spinach blends…

…and here are the massive bags of pre-stemmed, pre-cut kale they sell! (These really make salad preparation a snap.)

Kind also sells little boxes of “petite greens”, such as petite fennel and petite dill. I don’t really understand what this means, except for the obvious point that these greens are small(er than usual). Also, in the middle you can see some of their colorful edible flowers!

Kind Organics also offers herbs and wheatgrass, so as you can see you always have a lot to choose from. If you’re looking to sample any of these fantastic options, you can find Kind…

But for the most up-to-date information, always check the main page of their website (and scroll down a bit). Enjoy!
