Slices of (Food) Life: Hooked on ‘Ponics

There are a lot of excellent small businesses here, all trying to stay afloat. I will spotlight some regularly, as I find them. Please feel free to send me suggestions, too. 

Here’s a Boynton Beach business: Hooked on ‘Ponics, an indoor aquaponic farm that sells fresh sprouts, microgreens and salads, herbs, honey, kombucha, sauces, oils, vinegars, spices, salts, peppers, sugars, coffee and tea. Plus bath salts and skin salves.

All of that from a family-owned farm that sprung from a dream in 2015. 

The microgreens and sprouts include wheatgrass, sunflower, cilantro, broccoli, purple shiso, wasabi mustard, red radish, alfalfa, arugula, carrot, pea, kale, leek, amaranth, dill, puple kohlrabi, bok choy, bull’s blood beet, basil, rainbow chard, borage, and a 5-sprout salad mix. Besides being a beautiful growing scene, all of this is healthy and local, local, local. 

Visit the storefront and don’t overlook the growlers of green juice. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. They will deliver to your home or office. 

Hooked on ‘Ponics, 1054 Gateway Blvd., Ste. 104, Boynton Beach; 561/460-1450;
