We know how much you love our retail section, full of wellness elixirs, CBD products and adaptogens. So, we're expanding it into Planted Market. That's right, you heard it here first. Early this fall, Planted Market will open next door to our cafe at 333 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
You can expect wellness and health foods and adaptogens. We'll also have a fun mixture of beauty elixirs. And the best part? We'll remain all-vegan, so no need to worry about dietary restrictions.
We're going to expand our own product line, which currently has our best-selling CBD products and superfood mixes.
We're also going to really lean in on expanding our CBD collection. Currently we have CBD gummies, CBD tinctures CBD vapes, CBD flower and CBD joints. Stop by to see what's next!
Planted may seem like it sprouted up on Smith St. out of nowhere, but the truth of the matter is that we're the latest extension of a Brooklyn mini-empire started over 20 years ago. We thought we'd share our proud history and beginnings on here!
Our roots have always been in wellness since owner Loretta Gendville opened her first business, AREA Spa, in the late 1990s. She chose all-natural products and offered a holistic approach to skin care and relaxation. From there, with a captive local Carroll Gardens clientele, she opened a yoga studio. Neighbors came, stretched, strengthened and lengthened together, growing into a flourishing yoga community over the years.
Before long, AREA Yoga had expanded to two other locations in Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights. Not only were the yoga classes full, students also loved shopping the retail sections, which lead to Loretta's next venture: children's stores. The expansion was a natural fit, since AREA's students were mostly health-minded moms.
Over the years, Loretta dabbled in other businesses, including even a kids' salon. But the idea of an all-vegan cafe always danced in her mind and in 2017, she got to work finally opening it.
The build out of our beautiful space took a little longer than expected and she had to figure out health regulations and everything else that goes into opening a food business, but she eventually got there. In late 2018, Planted opened our doors and, we like to think, we became another instant neighborhood favorite.
By now you know that we are a 100% vegan cafe. But did you know that we have a weekly CSA for fresh fruits and in-season veggies? Here, we answer everything you need to know about subscriptions.
WHO: Planted Cafe has teamed up with Lancaster Farms, a cooperative of over 100 farms located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania that farms fresh, certified fruits, vegetables and other farm products.
WHAT: Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a produce subscription program wherein individuals and families can purchase a weekly share of the harvest.
HOW IT WORKS: CSA members pay for their shares when they register at the beginning of the season and receive weekly portions, or shares, for the duration of the season. The amount of produce you receive is based on which, and how many, shares you purchased at the beginning of the season. Included in this experience are the intrinsic risks and benefits of small-scale organic farming as affected by the weather of the particular season.
WHY: Are there really any other reasons than farm fresh produce delivered to us every week? Ok, well, here's another: unique to Lancaster CSA, compared to, say, a single, small farm CSA, is the variety of vegetable items they can offer members throughout the season thanks to their extensive base of farmers! Additionally, all thanks to their large farmer base, the risks mentioned and you may hear about elsewhere when considering a CSA membership, are much lower because of their large (100+!) farmer base. For example, if one farmer is experiencing tomato blight it is easier for them as a cooperative to manage this for your CSA by looking to a number of other farmers who may also be growing tomatoes.
WHEN: Pick up is every Monday, from 10am until 7pm.
WHERE: Planted Cafe, 333 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

A little update to our CBD post from a few weeks ago, and honestly just an interesting history lesson on the plant that we just had to share: CBD was used by Queen Victoria during the 19th century to alleviate menstrual cramps.

Having trouble sleeping? There's an adaptogen for that. Read on before reaching for that bottle of sleeping pills tonight.
It all starts with keeping our pineal gland in check. The pineal gland produces melatonin, which helps maintain circadian rhythm and regulate reproductive hormones. When our pineal gland is calcified, we’re out of balance with our basic biological functioning,
How exactly does calcification happen? It happens naturally to everyone, but is increased in those who eat a poor diet, particularly high in fluoride and phosphorus, which destabilize our mineral balance.
The key to better sleep is decalcifying and removing toxins such as lead, fluoride and heavy metals to purify your gland and balance the circadian rhythm to allow for better sleep and hormone balance along with clearer intuition and spiritual development.
Among our favorite additives is chlorella, a green algae native to Taiwan and Japan is a highly rich superfood containing phytonutrients, such as amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins. Its effects are removing metal toxins, increased oxygen levels and boosting immune functions for a reversal of pineal gland calcification.
Chlorella is found in many of our vegan dishes here at Planted, and can also be added upon request. Come and visit us at 333 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn to try some of them out!
