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.
