Finally! Ginger Organics - Astoria's very own 30th Ave neighborhood juice bar

Something that I love about my neighborhood are all of the super healthy and super tasty options just a walk away from my apartment.  Astoria is chock full of amazing eats, but over the past few years especially, has seen an influx of inventive, unique and trendy options.

A major trend the past few years has been very centered around healthy juices.  The juice cleanse craze has taken the world by storm and juice & smoothie bars have been popping up all over the city ever since!

Well folks, I am happy to report that finally...finally my awesome neighborhood has popped up it's very own organic juice & smoothie bar, Ginger Organics Astoria.  Yesssss!

This little gem is located at 37-01 30th Avenue around the corner from popular long-standing cafe, Grand Avenue.

I only stumbled upon Ginger Organics in the first place on my way home from the gym after I stopped to notice some colorful chalk signs on the sidewalk I had definitely ignored for a few weeks until actually taking a look -- and I'm so glad I did!

When I finally took my first step inside they had only been open a mere three weeks, and could already suggest popular items and customer favorites.  Not only do they offer juices and smoothies, but also some amazing-looking salads, quinoa bowls, chia pudding and homemade kale chips to name a few items!

My favorite (so far!) green smoothie with kale, spinach, almond milk, banana and agave.

Cold-pressed juices great to take on the go and to the office!

If you're a local, I highly recommend that you check out and enjoy this place pronto!  Last time I was in, they mentioned they'd be up and running on seamless in no time, so keep an eye out!

Whether you're local or not - this little healthy spot is worth the trip!

Feel Good,
