Misfits Market was created in 2018 by Abhi Ramesh after visiting a small apple farm in Pennsylvania and discovering the amount of food that goes to waste. He realized that farmers couldn’t sell bruised or unfortunate-looking apples and ultimately, were tossed or composted. This made Ramesh wonder what was happening on larger-scale farms.
MisfitsMarket was created to decrease food waste and help the earth. “Global food waste generates 3.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide annually…Saving this product can actually help to save the world.” Misfit vegetables are actually 40% cheaper than those in grocery stores, resulting in savings without compromising on taste and nutrition. Their produce is all organic and non-GMO and by purchasing, you’re helping organic farms generate extra income.
’ food is sourced from farms and food hubs across America, as well as outside of the country, to bring more variety to your subscription box. The fresh produce delivery service is based in New Jersey.
Misfits Market’s produce is affordable due to its nature, as items may feature superficial differences in terms of color, shape, size, or be dated. These are all reasons why perfectly good produce is rejected and goes to waste.
