The juice wave continues to flow through Boston as the latest in a handful of locally-born juice shops makes its way to Back Bay. Mother Juice, started by owners Ellen Fitzgerald and Laura Baldini, has a shop in Kendall Square, a stall in the Boston Public Market, and as of 8 a.m. today, a new location on Newbury Street.
Mother Juice is known for the local ingredients behind all of its organic creations. The dairy- and gluten-free menu includes smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and breakfast bowls, plus salads and avocado and peanut butter toasts.
Fitzgerald and Baldini first introduced their concept at the farmers market in Somerville’s Union Square before opening a food truck and then landing a permanent space in Kendall. They started work on this location in March.
The new store at 291 Newbury Street will be Mother Juice’s flagship, with about 1,000 square feet of space and seating both inside and out for 22 people. It offers the standard menu along with some special additions, including tapped cold brew coffee and kombucha, nitro cold brew, chia seed puddings, oats, and grain bowls.
Mother Juice will be open for limited hours today and next week (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and will kick into full hours starting the week of October 3. Those hours will be Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
