Collaboration Stories: Barrels & Bins
Barrels & Bins is a local market and specialty store located in Driggs, Idaho. You can regularly find Vertical Harvest Greens stocked in their produce section, as well as many other local vendors. We brought Bobbi (Barrels & Bins Produce Manager) into the greenhouse to talk about our local food systems and the importance of connecting people to the food in their pantry.
When you walk into Barrels and Bins you’ll notice the funky, friendly vibes that radiate throughout the store. Whether you’re stopping in for a quick snack on your lunch break or grabbing a specialty raw cheese to add to your dinner, Barrels and Bins will leave you feeling truly cared for with an abundance of high-quality products.
Bobbi believes that shopping locally “not only builds a deeper connection between people and their food, it builds human to human relationships, creates jobs, conserves energy and helps to spread food education awareness.” She claims that without local shoppers Barrels and Bins could no longer exist.
We’ve stocked Barrels and Bins with Vertical Harvest greens since 2018, and Bobbi says “The micro blends are a great soup topper and mixed into my other salad greens, yum! Customers love the variety of yummy petite blends and salad mixes, great for so many different meal designs!”. We are so thankful to be able to provide Driggs with our produce and we hope you stop by Barrels and Bins and say hi to Bobbi and her team!
