SALT LAKE CITY — Microgreen Directory is a new website recently launched in February 2022. The directory’s goal is to connect people looking for fresh produce, specifically microgreens, with their own local microgreen farm. People want fresh local produce, farmers are trying to build a business selling local produce. They focus on microgreens because of their short shelf life, their lifespan post-harvest is days.
