Field to Fork Wholefoods Kitchen

Stall 73-74, House of Health Collective, Adelaide Central Market

Field to Fork Wholefoods Kitchen is House of Health Collective’s newly opened restaurant, located within their Adelaide Central Market stall. Field to Fork focuses on just that – providing farm fresh, low intervention produce to the patrons of their newly developed eatery. Their smoothie and juice menu benefits greatly from this ethos, as you’re able to taste the freshness of their ingredients. Depending on your definition of ‘smoothie bowl’, Field to Fork is also a stockist of CocoWhip, a vegan and dairy-free ice cream made from coconut water that comes with all the toppings.

If you need to justify the use of their peanut butter 'fountain' – yes, you read that right, they have an ever-flowing stream of warm peanut butter – we give you permission to call your tub of gooey peanut butter a smoothie bowl as well.

The Plantation Juice Co.

Adelaide Central Market, Gouger Street, Adelaide

Bringing a slice of the beach bars in Mykonos to the Adelaide Central Markets, Plantation Juice Co. has all your summer vibes covered, any time of year. Their juices and smoothies don’t sacrifice taste for their health benefits – it’s the best of both worlds at Plantation Juice Co. They’re easy to find, just look for the pineapple-clad luau bar, surrounded by people sipping on colourful juices that will have you feeling like you’re on a beach all year round. If you want a taste of Plantain Juice Co at home, we have the recipe for one of their fan-favourites, Strawberry & Coconut Smoothie Bowl.

Juiced Life

Lower Ground, Rundle Place, Adelaide

Juiced Life juices began in retaliation to a cold – one of the founders had a weak immune system growing up and found the only thing that would ease his sniffly nose was blending his own juice concoctions. Juiced Life is all about health and vitality – their range of wellness shots aim to help with any colds being battled, and their juices are formulated in conjunction with nutritionists to ensure you get the most out of each of your juices!

Juice Lovers Juicery

Their juices menu spans 3 pages, and their glass food case is always filled to the brim with the healthiest and yummiest raw and vegan treats around. We suggest you make your next lunch date here and enjoy a fresh juice while you snack on one of their vegan Whole Food Bowls of Satay Tofu Burger – yum!
