Have you ever been shopping downtown in the warm Portland sun and suddenly had a craving for some real, organic, fruit juice? Greenleaf Juicing Company has become popular among Portland's juicers for their healthy variety of fruit, vegetable, and herb recipes. Greenleaf prides themselves on being 100% USDA organic, and because their method of juicing does not allow any of the ingredients to lose their nutrients, the juice is truly raw. The experience of visiting a Greenleaf juice bar is like no other. You can choose a juice recipe from the menu as it is or alter it to your specific needs. There are even suggestions for ways to make the juice more flavorful! The menu ranges from green juices to smoothies, and from soup to granola to enjoy while drinking your pressed fruits and veggies.
Greenleaf also has options for juice cleanses if you're feeling like you need some rejuvenating. Whether it's a hybrid cleanse or a full program you're looking for, Greenleaf will guide the way for you. If the downtown location isn't the most convenient spot for you to grab a juice, Greenleaf has three more locations around Portland! If you're near NW 23rd, Greenleaf houses a cart on NW 23rd and Glisan. If you're moseying around Tanner Springs Park or taking a dip in the Jamison Square fountains, pick up a juice at the Greenleaf in the Pearl District. And if you're enjoying an afternoon on the waterfront, stop by the Moody Avenue location near OHSU for some fresh juice. With all of the options for healthy and flavorful ingredients, you can enjoy your food and drinks knowing you're putting what's best for your body into your system and feeding it for a successful day. Enjoy your juice!
CNN has declared Portland to be home to the world's best street food. No wonder, since there are 400+ operational food carts at any one time out of 600 - 800 total. Unlike in cities like New York, Portland food carts tend to stay in place rather than be rolled in day-by-day.
