US: Vertically farmed salads now available in vending machines

Bowery collaborates with Wellfound Foods, a company bringing tech-enabled smart fridges for healthy eating to 75+ government, healthcare, and education sites across Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia. This limited-time-only recipe, a Peach & Herbed Goat Cheese Salad with Bowery greens, is available now.

Developed by Chef Mark Locraft, the Bowery x Wellfound Foods salad features fresh peaches, goat cheese, cucumber, grape tomatoes, smoked almonds, caramelized onions, and honey balsamic dressing over a bed of Bowery Crispy Leaf, Baby Kale, and Basil. The salad is now available 24/7 at Wellfound SmartMarkets, expanding access to healthy, local food options at transit hubs, educational institutions, and healthcare providers.

“Bowery is expanding to meet our consumers’ desire for healthy food in all aspects of their lives, from the grocery store to the ballpark and beyond. Our collaboration with Wellfound Foods is the latest delivery on that promise -- this peach and herbed goat cheese salad is available at on-the-go locations where healthy food can be a challenge to find, like airports and hospitals. These SmartMarkets provide access to nutritious, fresh food 24 hours a day,” said Matt Williams, Chief Sales Officer, Bowery.

Bowery and Wellfound Foods share a commitment to satisfying the demand for healthy, delicious food and modernizing the grab-and-go experience. With frequent menu updates, Wellfound Foods is bringing a diversity of flavors to cashless smart fridges at locations like train stations, college campuses, and Capitol Hill.

Fresh, delicious greens are the base of this salad recipe, enlivened by fresh peaches and creamy goat cheese. And our smart fridges offer extras like hard-boiled eggs and blackened chicken for customers who want a protein boost, too.”
