Thirsty? You are in luck! Remember a couple of weeks ago, we told you Fishtown was getting its very own juice bar? Well, today, said juice bar — Towners Juice Bar at the corner of Palmer and Thompson Streets — will be doling out free juice as long as supplies last.
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).
Hold the phone, you guys: When I told you on Tuesday that Bella Vista’s Sip-N-Glo would be giving away tons of free juice for their birthday on Wednesday, I didn’t realize just how much. A few minutes ago, Sip-N-Glo tweeted that their very thirsty customers drank a whopping 1,023 pounds of veggies yesterday. Dang!

Sip-N-Glo’s birthday is tomorrow! (They’re turning two, in case you were wondering.) And to celebrate the big day, they’ll be serving up 12-ounce portions of their Glo Up and One Love — which snagged the title of Best Green Juice last year — to their customers, on the house. That’s right, you’ll get your daily juice fix for free-ninety-nine. Read more »
Last week, we asked you guys to spill the beans on where we could find the best smoothies and juices around Philly and, man, did you have a lot of opinions! You all gave shout outs to a ton of spots: Sook Hee’s Produce, Stripp’d Juice, and P.S. & Co., just to name a few (hop on over here to check out all the comments). And you were nice enough to list off some of your go-to orders from favorites like The Juice, Sip-N-Glo, Gangster Vegan Organics, and more. Below, a list of must-try juices and smoothies around Philly, as chosen by you.

A juice rut: ever been in one? Be Well editor Emily and I were just chatting about how we are both at a loss for new juices and smoothies to try around town. And the thing that makes being in a juice rut tougher than, say, an ice cream rut, is the fact that juice is an investment: A single-serving of cold-pressed green juice can run you upward of $10. And if it tastes like grass pulled from a lawnmower, welp, you’re out of 10 bucks for no good reason. Which is why we tend to stick to our favorites, and now find ourselves smack dab in the middle of a full-blown juice rut.
But we want to expand our juice horizons, which is where you guys come in. We want to know: What’s the absolute best, must-try juice or smoothie Philly has to offer? When we asked you guys about the best veggie burger in Philly, you came through big time. And we know you’ve got plenty of opinions on the subject of juice, so let’s here ‘em. Ready, set, comment!

You may have seen Khoran Horn at Urban Yoga Philly a few weeks back, or maybe at DIG Yoga in Queen Village earlier this month. You may have even tried his juices (lucky you!).
The 31-year-old foodie/entrepreneur, who lives in Fishtown, has been quietly popping up around town lately, slinging his new line of cold-pressed juices at various fitness events and studios in an effort to get the word out about his brand, Stripp’d Cold-Pressed Juice. So, obviously, I needed to know more about it.
Consider Thursday’s lunch plans covered: This year, Philadelphia magazine is opening a few of the annual Best of Philly food categories up for taste tests, and you are invited! The three categories being tested are Best Whoopie Pie, Best Tomato Pie and—drumroll, please—Best Juice. Mmmmm….
Philadelphia magazine editors have chosen the top four contenders in each category—the spots competing for Best Juice are Sip-N-Glo, Yellow Juice Bar, Sook Hee’s Produce and Pangea Juice & Co.—and tomorrow they will be doling out free samples from each nominee so that YOU can cast your ballot for Best of Philly. To snag a lunch of free juice, tomato pies and whoopee pies (yes, please!), all you’ve got to do is show up at the lower level of the Comcast Center (near the food court) around noon tomorrow and get your taste test on.
