Best place for farm-to-table if it’s your kitchen in the middle: Meecham Urban Farm

Meecham Urban Farm

After two years of work, Meacham Farm opened earlier this year in Tampa’s Encore district; punk rocker-turned-urban farmer Travis Malloy’s operation quickly earned deserved praise for the diversity and quality of the produce sprouting from the two acres of organic farm right next to the Bro Bowl. From squash blossoms to pea shoots—with contributions from partner farms further north during our nothing-grows-here summer season—what better way to learn how to cook kohlrabi than with some that got pulled out of the ground that morning? (If you need a recipe, ask Travis.)
