Nourish Wellness Cafe and Juice Bar

Nourish began as a tiny kiosk in Thornes Marketplace. There, the couple worked side-by-side, open to close, 7 days a week serving fresh juices and smoothies. They continued to dream bigger, and their business evolved into the airy, light-filled cafe on the corner of Market and Bridge Streets – the newest vegetarian restaurant in Northampton MA. Locals and visitors alike head to Nourish in search of hearty “wellness bowls,” (consisting of a bed of grains or greens piled with toppings as tasty as they are beneficial), healing teas, Fair Trade Certified™ coffee, gluten- and grain-free treats, ingenious fresh juice blends and smoothies loaded with supplements and superfoods. It’s all organic, and much of it is locally-sourced.
