minigrow is an experience—from the food, to the team, to the energy of the space, we want each visit to our minigrow locations to feel (+ taste) unlike anything New York has ever experienced before. To further elevate this experience, we wanted to feature artists who push boundaries + challenge the viewer with intricate, colorful + playful imagery.
in late March, we hosted an intimate pop-up dinner for some of our New York friends at Brooklyn FoodWorks—a career creation platform which exists to help educate + empower culinary start-ups by providing access to high-end kitchen space, mentors + other utilities. Without their aid, launching a new business in the bustling New York market seems to be a daunting task.
we're thrilled to announce our first Brooklyn, NY location + 16th overall is now open at 194 Joralemon Street!

the other night we hosted a few of our New York friends, bloggers, photographers + press for an intimate dinner in Williamsburg.
flower delivery services have been around for decades, however the overall experience of ordering + receiving those flowers has barely evolved. This is where UrbanStems steps in—D.C. born, but now in Baltimore, Austin, Philadelphia + New York City, this flower delivery start-up is taking each order personally to help elevate expectations + change the industry overall.
our new Rutgers location features photos that showcase a journey through the seasons as captured by Rutgers-Newark alum, Martin Tadashi. A prominent name on Instagram, Martin's photos know no bounds—from hyper creative portraiture to sweeping cityscapes, his photography conveys a deeper understanding of not only the camera, but the subject as well.
As one of our fellow seasonal food advocates, and one of the few restaurateurs in the area with locations on both sides of the Delaware, we had to sit down with Joshua Lawler of The Farm and The Fisherman (both BYO and Tavern + Market) to chat trailblazing in the local food scene.
