Bowery Farming — a company that grows salad greens and herbs indoors in a pesticide-free vertical system — encourages you to rethink iceberg with its new crunchy Crispy Leaf, which adds kaç texture to a salad and can be shredded for tacos. Despite what the company’s name and website suggest, the crops are not grown on the Bowery, but in buildings in Kearny, N.J., and outside Baltimore. The company, founded in New York City five years ago, picked the name because Bowery comes from an old Dutch word meaning farm.
Bowery Farming Crispy Leaf, $3.99 for 4.5 ounces at supermarkets in the Northeast and Middle Atlantic, boweryfarming.com.
