JuiceBuzz owners and sisters Jacqueline Pfeffer and Jessica Pfeffer, have expanded their small business into an additional storefront market and an eco-friendly, sustainable super-local store.
JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery, 6 NE 5th Ave., is unique with offerings of organic produce from local farms, super food powders and supplements, holistic skincare, all-natural hygiene products and sustainable household items. The laundry detergent is sustainable. There’s even Kombucha on-tap.
“We’re on a conscious mission,” JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery co-owner Jacqueline Pfeffer said.
JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery has the environment on the mind. They now sell re-usable glass straws that can be taken anywhere. The effort cuts down on plastic straw use. In addition, the place is free of any plastic bags. The floor at the new JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery is made of recycled and reusable wood bark cork.
“We’re on a no-plastic mission (straws) with the intention to save the planet,” Jacqueline Pfeffer said.
“I would describe the JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery as a conscious boutique market with a rustic farm house and organic feel,” Jessica Pfeffer said.
The décor of JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery was completed by Michelle Kushner Design of Miami.
The Pfeffer’s hub is the latest small business to expand off of busy East Atlantic Avenue to spill over onto what is now a bustling Northeast Fifth Ave. thoroughfare through Delray Beach. An appealing factor is that the JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery will be open seven days a week 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Jacqueline Pfeffer opened JuiceBuzz in 2013. In the location of a former Crepe’s Shop, Pfeffer captured a new business base made up of mostly Delray Beach locals looking for an all-natural fruit or vegetable juices or smoothies, cleanse, detox or reboot juice plans, acai bowl and shots of wheatgrass, ginger, sunflowers, with other combinations and ingredients as well.
Fast-forward a few years and Nutrition Cottage’s departure off of Atlantic Avenue and a void that needed to be filled in the organic grocery industry. Since then, Jacqueline Pfeffer has moved to San Diego, but said she’ll be still involved with the JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery with support “remotely.” When the spot next store to JuiceBuzz opened up, the Jacqueline led the Pfeffer team in redesigning a vacant storefront into JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery.
Jessica Pfeffer, fresh off of a corporate job in Denver, Colorado, moved to town she said to “marriage the journey.” The end result is the JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery, with its organic local fruits and vegetables, and array of earth friendly
The kombucha on tap is tasty, its fermented tea and delicious, and local via Kombulicious of Oakland Park.
Owner Scott Lyons and Chef Glenn Dee brew their Kombulicous in three-week intervals. Two bottles of Kumbilicous were available during the Grand Opening of the JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery and another flavor was on-tap behind the counter for patrons to indulge.
“Kombucha is full of probiotics. It’s good for gut health,” Scott Lyons, owner of Kombulicious said.
Kombulicious will be offering a rotation of flavors of kombucha regularly at the JuiceBuzz MRKT & Juicery.
