One of our purveyors, Sun Grown Organics, brings up a great point. "People don’t know where their produce comes from anymore. Mass-produced this and processed-that. What happened to real food grown by real people?" In business for over 20 years in San Diego, Sun Grown cultivates microgreens, microherbs, sprouts, micro mixes, specialty greens and shoots, and edible blossoms.
Paul Martin’s® works with a variety of produce growers and suppliers to always put the freshest, most vibrant greens on our plates. Earthbound Farm has been organic since their beginning in 1984, and in 1986 was actually the first to successfully produce the pre-washed, packaged lettuces that we all purchase in the supermarket today. Their certified organic California greens are still produced with the guidance of the original founders and the same commitment to quality.
At our Irvine restaurant we have baby beets sprouting up in a new feature salad with some amazing goat cheese and almonds. It will be delighting taste palettes in the OC this week!
