The Vending Machine Farmer's Market Makes it Easy to Eat Well

Farmer's Fridge is a vending machine farmer's market that's changing the way consumers see on-the-go food.

Farmer’s Fridge is a rustic looking vending machine featuring mason jars loaded with farm fresh fruits, veggies and legumes.  It’s energy efficient (uses less than $10 electricity per month) and it accepts credit cards. The jars are stocked at 5am daily and delivered to the vending machines by 10am, at which point old salads are removed and donated to a food pantry.  At 6pm, every night, the salads are discounted $1.

Riding on the trend of vending machines that deliver pet snacks, to eggs, to beauty products, this is also sure to attract those people that prefer not to quench hunger by eating by eating fast food. Couple this with a green and local approach and this might soon spread form the Chicago market where it’s originating.
