Farmer’s Fridge is a vending machine that delivers healthy, gourmet meals made from fresh, high quality ingredients each morning.
Vending machine food isn’t typically known as an example of fine dining, instead serving to provide a quick fix when customers can’t get their hands on some proper food. While we’ve previously seen innovations such as Yves Behar’s Briggo aim to deliver barista-quality coffee from a robotic kiosk. Farmer’s Fridge creates healthy gourmet meals from fresh, high quality ingredients each morning, delivered through vending machines.
The Chicago-based start-up collects fresh produce direct from local farms each morning and begins making the day’s salads, breakfast pots and health snacks at 5 am. By 10 am, the meals are ready and loaded into the touchscreen-enabled kiosk and all leftovers from the previous day are donated to a food bank. From the super-food Detox Salad to the bodybuilding High Protein Salad, each meal is packed into a 100 percent recyclable plastic jar which can be returned to the kiosk after use. The gourmet salads start at about $8 dollars. The first Farmer’s Fridge kiosk is currently located in The Loop in Chicago, although the team will offer the service in more locations in the near future.
