Vancouver’s Living Produce Aisle is a green grocer that takes the locavore concept to an unprecedented extreme, growing its products right in the store.
When the doors open this Saturday at the Gastown location, customers will be able to choose from dozens of different herbs, micro-greens and sprouts and have them cut to order right from the hydroponic cultivators.
The shop will also sell raw food smoothies, wheat grass shots and a salad created by Four Seasons hotel executive chef Ned Bell.
“We can grow between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds of produce a month in 20 cultivators,” said owner and founder Tarren Wolfe, also the co-owner of Surrey-based hydroponics manufacturer Urban Cultivator. “We can get four complete crops a month of most of the micro-greens and sprouts.”
