Vending machines don’t usually provide the most nutritious foods (a la candy, soda and burritos), although sometimes it’s the easiest option. Luckily, there’s now a much healthier alternative hitting the market — Farmer’s Fridge.

These refrigerated kiosks aren’t your standard vending machine. In fact, Farmer’s Fridge prefers to call them “veggie machines.” Each kiosk is made from reclaimed local wood and recycled materials, and they’re stocked every single morning with freshly-made salads. From the High Protein to the Mediterranean mixture, each salad is packed in a recyclable jar that makes eating on-the-go extra easy. They also offer deliciously healthy snacks, like apple slices with almond butter and Greek yogurt with berries.

Even better, Farmer’s Fridge discounts all salads by $1 after 6pm, and any food that doesn’t sell the same day is donated to local food pantries.

As of right now, the healthy kiosks can only be found in Chicago, but Farmer’s Fridge is hoping to expand to New York in the near future.
