Vietnamese iced coffee, Havarti and fig grilled cheese, and of course, Happy Trails cookies. We’re all familiar with the taste of what Juniper Market has served our town over the years, and these are just a few of the menu items to expect at Juniper Market’s new location at 48 San Marco Avenue. Established in 2013 by local business owner, Jenn Ashton, the coffee shop that once began as a grab-n-go operation is set to reopen in its very own space Friday, October 2nd with new branding by M.C. Pressure and some all-new menu items including Salmon Cake Pita, Chickpea Salad Sandwich, Whipped Banana Toast, and Chia Pudding.
“I’m excited about this transition. Having my own space has always been the end-goal, and though it’s been a long road, we’re finally here,” said Ashton, owner of Juniper Market. After starting Juniper Market within the shared space of Coastal Traders, and then moving on to sharing a space with local artist, Jenna Alexander, Ashton is now able to share Juniper Market with the world in its own, unique space.
Aside from fresh, scratch-made menu items, Juniper Market offers guests a chance to engage with the community. The vibrant, communal space at the new location on San Marco Avenue in Uptown St. Augustine was crafted with care.From the hand-painted mural on the wall, to the hand-thrown latte cups, this is a place for locals to enjoy the small details. Guests will also be able to shop locally-sourced goods from wine, honey, and coffee to home décor and eco-friendly products while visiting.
“It was always important to me that we serve locals,” Ashton explained when asked about the inspiration behind her café. “I wanted Juniper to be a place where locals can come together, enjoy their coffee, and know the person behind the bar. Over the years, Juniper has become a family, and I’m so excited to welcome back that family to our new home.”
