Every day, on my seven-minute walk home from the subway, I see a good 5,654 sweaty humans walking or biking or skateboarding home with a yoga mat in hand. Okay, okay, maybe that number is a slight exaggeration — but there are a lot of them. This has made me wonder for months now how Fishtown, a neighborhood that is overflowing with hip yogis, does not have a single juice shop. Because let’s be honest: Generally speaking, yogis and juice go together like peanut butter and jelly. And it looks like someone read my mind: Towners Juice Bar is set to open at the corner of Palmer and Thompson Streets this month.
Hey, Manyank juice junkies: Remember when we told you way back in November that a new juice shop would be coming your way? Well, you’ll be happy to hear that The Juice Merchant — a cafe serving up tons of fresh-pressed raw juices along with smoothies, wraps, seasonal salads and more — has officially opened its doors on Manayunk’s Main Street (4330 Main Street to be exact).
