If you struggle to eat all your fruits and vegetables, maybe it’s time to squeeze in a juice stop. Fuel up on real food and power through the rest of that to-do list with a healthy sip of nutrients from these standout juice spots in Philadelphia.
You'll feel magic the moment you waltz into either of Bimini's Logan Square or Northern Liberties juice bars. Their name comes from the fabled “Fountain of Youth” and beliefs that Bimini would have the elusive spring. While we can’t guarantee their sips will halt the aging process, you’ll more than likely feel invigorated—an extra spring in your step—from their raw, healthy juices that they always make fresh. Fitt Tip: When you’re feeling hungry for some heavier fare, their oatmeal’s the best in the city and costs a mere $5!
Philly’s hometown hero, honeygrow, is known for health-minded stir fries, salads, and their DIY honeybar. Lucky for us, their most recent venture is fresh, cold-pressed juices — and these babies won’t break the bank! They’re sticking to simple with three options: Green Is Good (apple, spinach, cucumber, lemon, and basil), Orange You Thirsty (orange, carrot, lemon, and ginger), and the Better Off Red (watermelon, beet, lemon, and raspberry). honeygrow’s fast-casual goodies will fill you up without weighing you down, and adding juices to the mix just makes sense.
When it comes time to power up or recharge, Fuel should be your first stop. It’s an all organic refueling station serving lean, green, and clean eats. And get this: everything on the menu (including juice and an entire meal) comes in at under 500 calories. Now that’s what we call fuel-efficient! As a bonus, you can fuel up at three different locations across the city.
If you’re in Old City or Wilmington, you’ll need to stop by Stripp’d for a goldmine of good-for-you drinks. From blended nut milks to smoothies, to hand-painted signs and crazy cool counters, everything here is on point — especially the juice. For a bold blend, try the spicy kale concoction known as the Jala At Ya Boy. For something a bit heartier, nab a Point Break Bowl made with their house-made peanut butter. But take note: they sell out fast on the weekends.
Fitness enthusiasts head to The Juice because here, it’s all about performance. They sell only the meanest, greenest, most nutritious juices and smoothies for athletes who need a little pep in their step. That means these juices are packed with fiber, plant-based protein, and maca powder, among other awesome ingredients. Not an athlete? No worries, you can still enjoy any of their nourishing concoctions. Fitt Tip: you can’t visit their production facility so check their site to find a local "Stockist" partner selling their juices.
The Juice Merchant must have gotten tired of the usual juice menu. And let’s be honest, you probably have too with juices like green juice, red juice, and blue juice. Thankfully, The Juice Merchant decided to up the ante. Their menu introduced some awesome concoctions to our juice and smoothie repertoire. The selection at their Manayunk and University City locations features the The Carribean juice using the spirulina Blue Majik, while Coffeelicious and Hawaiian Delight take the smoothie game to another level.
The word "ánimo" translates to energy and vitality in Spanish, but you’ll need two more words to explain this Philly favorite: juice and burritos. Yes, really! To be clear, there are no burrito-flavored juices or juice-filled burritos — these items are sold separately. But both are made with health in mind. So, count on fresh ingredients, no preservatives, GMOs, or deep fryers. Looking for a quick boost? Opt for an energizer that’s au natural, like one of their Ginger Lemon wellness shots.
With nearly a hundred different vendors packed into the famed Reading Terminal Market, it was only a matter of time until someone started juicing fresh fruits and veggies. And that someone is Four Seasons Juice Bar. With all the juices under $10, they’re one of the healthiest — options in the building, and most budget-friendly! Next time you visit Reading Terminal Market, be sure to snag a little something from this spot to enjoy while exploring the many merchants.
We’re always on the lookout for quick grab-and-go juice options, and nowhere makes this easier than Snap Kitchen. With their numerous locations throughout the city—all conveniently located near gyms or studios—they’re ready to fuel any fitness routine. Grab an Early Bird with citrus, turmeric, and black pepper before work, or spring for an Energy Boost juice after a lifting session. No matter your choice, you’ll be back in business in no time.
East Market’s development seems never-ending, but we must give props for introducing a MOM’s Organic Market with a Naked Lunch juice bar inside. While they’ve got plenty of filling bowls to satisfy your hunger, they’ve also let you customize the beverage (yes, that includes juice) of your choosing at some of the most affordable prices in the city. It’s perfect when you want to sip while you shop!
Tourists love flocking to Reading Terminal Market for its tempting treats and over-the-top eats. But, for those of us living, working, and eating in Center City, we head to Iovine Brothers Produce for some of the freshest fruits and veggies in the city. And while you’re grabbing some greens, you can now stop by for a fresh-pressed juice located along the back register. They’ve got all different flavors, and prepared salads too, making this stand a must-visit when you’re in the neighborhood!
The minds behind this shop may have leafy greens and hearty grain bowls as their numero uno, but it would be wrong to discount them when it comes to juice. This plant-based mecca features an extensive juice and smoothie menu. And the best part? It’s served all day, every weekday. Stop by for a customizable Grain or Greens Bowl, and then seal the deal with the Piña Kalada: a made-in-heaven blend of pineapple, kale, and coconut.
The Sanskrit word for truth, satya, defines this juice shop’s mission perfectly: deliver juice in its purest, truest form. That means 100% raw, organic, and cold-pressed. If done right, Satya believes working their juice (and cleanses and detox soups) into your routine can help you reach optimum health. See for yourself with the Bok Choy Joy that comes packed with the digestion-helping veggies of bok choy, broccoli, and celery. Fitt Tip: order delivery online or pick up these juices in person at the operation inside Sweat Fitness’s Queen Village gym.
