When Jen Villa and Nicole Cormier launched The Local Juice in 2014, they quickly realized they wanted to open a brick-and-mortar space.
“It just took us a long time to get there!” says Villa.
For more than two years, they sold their cold-pressed juices at farmers markets and Barnstable Market. But in June, their dream of opening their own space finally came true.
The Local Juice Bar + Pantry, located next to Villa’s Little Beach Gallery in Hyannis, will sell their six popular cold-pressed juices—Rise, Flourish, Harvest, Cultivate, Rooted and Shine—along with other assorted organic smoothies, wellness shots and beverages. The pantry section will showcase local seasonal produce, farm fresh eggs, Nobska Farm hot sauce, Chequessett Chocolate, Wellfleet Sea Salt and products from E & T Farms.
The 1,000-square-foot-space (half retail/half production kitchen) will also house their year-round Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, where customers can buy selections of locally grown organic produce in bulk. Delicious Living Nutrition, Cormier’s nutrition counseling practice, will see clients on site and The Local Juice Bar + Pantry will also offer cooking classes and nutrition workshops.
“One of our goals, is to connect people to their food and to the mindfulness side of it,” says Cormier, who says they go out of their way to work with nearby farms. “We’re not a fad or a cleanse. Drinking the juice is more like taking your multivitamin.”
