Central Market Launches New Wave of Pure, Raw Juices
Looking for more ways to get your daily intake of fruits and veggies? Look no further than Central Market’s Produce department. We’ve upped our offerings of pure, raw juices.
The juicing trend is experiencing a meteoric climb, thanks to lithe celebrities like Olivia Wilde and star trainer Tracy Anderson, who take in natural fruits and vegetables in pressed form. Raw juices from Organic Avenue made an appearance at Fashion Week last season. There are even “celebrity juicers,” such as Marcus Antebi of New York’s Juice Press, who cater to supermodels like Erin Wasson.
Advocates say juicing whole fruits, vegetables and even herbs is an easy way to supplement your diet with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. The end result is a tasty drink packed with power from the likes of potassium, vitamins A and C, folic acid, or carotene, among others. In addition to being health boosters, pure, raw juices taste delicious
Central Market stores now boast powerful new juicing machines that can handle whole fruits and vegetables. The chef team has created more than 50 fruit and vegetable blends in four categories: citrus, apple, wellness and cocktail. Up to 20 will be available on any given day, freshly squeezed every day and packed on ice in the Produce department.
Citrus-based juices include strawberry pineapple, mint lemonade, orange basil and single-ingredient juices like grapefruit and orange. Apple bases start with Granny Smith or Red Delicious apples and yield blends like apple beet carrot, blueberry orange apple and raspberry pomegranate orange apple. Wellness blends include the popular Central Market “green” juice, raw vegetable, carrot celery beet spinach. Seasonal cocktail offerings will make mean mixers: imagine margarita, sangria, mojito or apple sangria cocktails made with a fresh-squeezed juice base!
