Dan and Mitchel make a short trip to Tom Pontano & Son Farms, in Vineland, New Jersey, where we get some of the beautiful lettuces that grace our shelves. They find crunchy romaine; green leaf lettuce—super soft and sweet; freakishly perfect strawberries; full of sunshine-induced sugar; vibrant spearmint. The fruits and veggies get picked and arrive at Fairway the very next day. Doesn’t get much fresher than that.
Nothing’s better than taking time to visit a farm, feeling the sun on your skin, and munching on some peppery greens straight from the ground. But if you’re stuck at your desk like me, you can live vicariously through Dan and Mitchel and check out their visit to this lovely Jersey farm:
