Entrepreneur Luke Saunders has launched Farmer’s Fridge, a vending machine that sells fresh kale and strawberries instead of candy, Fast Company said.

Each morning, the machine is filled with freshly made salads and snacks packed in recyclable jars. At 10 a.m., the unsold food is removed to maintain freshness and refilled with new salads.

The ingredients, carefully layered to stay crisp throughout the day, are all organic, and locally grown when possible. The price is around $8.

“I have always been someone who sought out healthy food,” Saunders said. “I really noticed how hard it was to eat healthy when I was traveling a lot for work, and I started thinking about ways to give healthy food an edge in the market,” he added.

After opening two more vending machines last fall, Farmer’s Fridge is continuing to quickly grow.
