Farmer’s Fridge is mainly a salad vending machine company. Yes, you heard that correctly. They serve fresh and healthy salads in plastic, recyclable mason jars out of their custom vending machines. Welcome to Martha Stewart’s future. The salads are made fresh and restocked daily, which makes them a great option to grab a healthy meal for about $10. But there’s also a stand at Revival Food Hall where Farmer’s Fridge not only makes their great salads, but also serves a number of different soups and fancy toast options too. The avocado, salmon, or roast beef toast are our favorites, and the salads are always great.
