Inspired Market Gardens is committed to serve discerning
chefs by working closely with you to provide exceptionally
flavourful and beautiful looking products, in a way
that is easy to manage and utterly dependable. We
believe in a direct Farmer-Chef relationship, allowing
you to know exactly where and how your product is
grown, and providing you flexibility and uniqueness
to make the gourmet creations you are renowned for.
Our mission is to grow, harvest and
deliver the highest quality, safest and most flavourful
distinctive herbs, gorgeous edible flowers, fabulous
greens & specialty mixed salads, while maintaining
a commitment to ecologically friendly and wholly sustainable
agricultural practices. We believe that this method
of growing adds to the intensity of flavour and nutrients
to all of our products.
Sustainable agriculture is a victory
for everyone: You win because we can offer you a product
with better taste; future generations win because
the soil we leave will continue to be alive and productive;
and your guests win, because you are creating plates
with the highest quality products you could possibly
put on them.
It is interesting to note that in
a recent trip to San Francisco/Berkeley, we visited
Alice Water’s world famous restaurant ‘Chez
Panisse’. At the bottom of their menu is the
simple phrase: “All our produce, meat, poultry,
and fish come from farms, ranches, and fisheries guided
by principles of sustainability”.
We encourage you to explore our site
- read about our products and learn about our farming
practices. If there is a product you don’t see
and want us to grow for you, send us an email and
let’s chat about it – we’ll do our
best to exceed your expectations. No surprises. Just
the goods, naturally.
In the 2006 season Inspired Market
Gardens brings you a trendy new addition to our gourmet
greens: ‘MICRO-GREENS’! These are intensely
flavoured thin delicate seedlings, shoots, and tiny
leaves of specialty vegetables. You can use them as
garnishes or toppings on almost any dish. Try them
on top of sliced pork or lamb, on grilled vegetables
- or create a unique salad. Included in our micro-greens
mix will be delicious beet tops, cutting celery, kale
leaves, kohlrabi shoots, upland and speppergrass cress,
show pea shoots, baby chard, and spinach.
Just the goods, naturally.
