Ok… we won’t drop the ‘holiday shopping’ bomb on you just yet (Halloween literally just happened). Buuut there are some REALLY awesome wellness spots that are opening up around New York City that may or may not be great places to look for gifts (either for yourself or for a friend). So here it is, our ‘unofficial’ list of holiday shopping hotspots.
Location: 240 E 54th St
Founder: Lily Kunin of Clean Food Dirty City
We just co-hosted an event at Clean Market with Lily and the cool women behind Yumi organic baby food. There were cryotherapy facials, an infrared sauna, a smoothie bar, and walls stacked with Lily’s favorite wellness products (many of which we’ve covered here on our site- hey Bee Keeper’s Naturals!) They also offer NutriDrips which Lily swears by; We haven’t been brave enough to try it yet, but friends have said amazing things. This is the midtown haven to grab a good smoothie on the go, pick up a last minute gift, or spend some serious down time detoxing and relaxing with a friend.
The Goods Mart
Location: 189 Lafayette
Founder: Rachel Krupa
Best purchases: Fresh baked cookies from Things She Bakes, cosmetically challenged fruit + veg (imperfect but still delicious), and an organic slushy.
We’ve been so patiently waiting for The Goods Mart to open up on the east coast- There’s already one in Los Angeles. Rachel’s concept is to provide a better for you, stop-and-go style convenience store. The sight of Smart Food bags and Lays chips are replaced with wall-to-wall Siete chips, fresh fruit, and apple cider vinegar. They even carry fresh baked local goods from vendors like Things She Bakes. It’s a great spot to pick up some extra snacks on your way to that holiday party. And tips go to charity 🙂
Location: 92 Greenwich Avenue
Founder: Tara Foley
We’ve been teased for years with NYC Follain pop-up after Follain pop-up, but FINALLY! This one’s here to stay. Tara just opened the spot last week, and it totally fulfills all of your clean beauty dreams. Products are organized by kind and skin type, not by brand, so it makes it easy to shop for exactly what you need for exactly who you need it for.
Location: 384 Bleecker St
Founder: Nicole Berrie
All of the little holiday essential you need can be found at the Bonberi Bodega pop-up. There’s food prep must-haves like all-natural sprinkles and Brightland olive oil, earth friendly toothpastes and toilet paper to stock up on for your guests, and healthy Bonberi approved meals to keep you sustained as you get all of the decorating, wrapping, and cooking under control. Don’t forget, Nicole also keeps a healthy stock of her clean beauty and wellness favorites like Golde turmeric powder, the Tata Harper Lip Treatment, and other small shopping favorites.
