Downtown’s doughnut shop just got a healthy new neighbor. Opening today, Grass Roots juice bar is the newest addition to the renovated John E. Carson building, joining the popular O Face Doughnuts and celebrity chef Kerry Simon’s highly anticipated Carson Kitchen.

A joint venture between Downtown Project, Nichole Hester and health coach Shane Stuart, Grass Roots will offer juices, smoothies, soups, made-to-order meals and desserts. “We look forward to educating our customers on their path to wellness,” Stuart said in a release on Tuesday. Prior to Grass Roots, Stuart created recipes for the popular health-food restaurant Greens and Proteins.

Billed as an environmentally conscious and sustainable kitchen, Grass Roots supports local and regional farmers by sourcing produce from places like the Downtown 3rd Farmer’s Market. The wellness shop will offer raw, vegan, dairy-, soy- and gluten-free salads, wraps and desserts from Raw Makery, the local company behind Go Raw Café.

Grass Roots’ raw smoothie blends include the Holy Grail of Greens (a whopping 14-ingredient smoothie including kale, fennel, sunflower microgreens, tangerine and ginger) and the Veggieccino, a healthy, vegan take on the Frappucino.

Grass Roots 124 S. 6th Street #160. Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
