Justin Upshaw of EssentialRVA Microgreens is making waves in Richmond with his premium microgreens. He has always been connected to growing as his grandfather kept a small garden growing up. He now carries that in spirit as he takes pride in growing his microgreens local and chemical free. In his small Richmond apartment, Justin researched what he could grow with little room to make a big impact. He has now sold his microgreens all over Richmond and settles at St. Stephens farmers market on Saturdays. EssentialRVA sells a variety of microgreens such as sunflower, radish, broccoli, and mustard greens, providing nutrient packed solutions for many dishes. Taking only two weeks to grow and contains up to 40% more vitamins and minerals, microgreens has become a health fad EssentialRVA plans to keep up with.
