A long overdue introduction for all of our new (& old) friends out there. This is Olya & Jeff - The Green Cart’s core team. 🟢 We are married, we live in Austin and we share love for good food, good design & good travel.
Jeff is a tech & business wizard with an art degree from UT. He speaks French & Chinese! 🈯️ Olya is passionate about tactility & screens with a degree in Byzantine & Greek philology (from Lomonosov Moscow State University) and in fashion (from Parsons The New School for Design). Native in Russian. Fluent in Greek ♻️
Jeff started The Green Cart 🌱 in 2005, as an organic food cart on the Drag. He turned it into a wholesale company with a commissary kitchen off Montopolis soon after. We met in 2014 in an art museum (museum party haha -museum nevertheless, thanks MoMA PS1 :) Fast forward to 2020 we run The Green Cart together 💚 - day in and day out.
When not in our kitchen (East Austin) we are tinkering about life & business in front of our screens at home, on this big pink couch that catches the nicest light. 🔰 Countless zooms and google hangouts are the new normal so we may as well enjoy:)
Shoutout to The Green Cart Pantry & other new sprouts, connections, beginnings, born digitally, during the pandemic ✳️ - we are grateful. And since we’re on it (gotta love a good CTA:) you should join our newsletter (deli daily - or more like, deli weekly) if you haven’t yet here ✅
We plan to share updates on hyperlocal food, nature & culture - and when we do, you will be the first one to know! A sign up comes with a TREAT ❇️ :)
