There are times when water just doesn’t cut it. And luckily, for those times, there is Jungle Juice.
Partners Guido and Natalia have been running their business, Jungle Juice, since November 2020, with many locals already converts to the fresh fruit juices and smoothies they serve up at the markets.
They also sell fresh fruit, all of which is grown spray-free on their farm at Mooball.
The couple run their stall at the Mullumbimby Farmers Market every Friday and say they draw satisfaction from seeing local faces return each week.
‘It’s great to see the same customers coming back every week as it shows that what we’re providing is good enough for people to want to come back,’ Guido says.
‘We love being part of such a great community of people.
‘Every stall at the market offers such great produce and such love for what they do, which makes you feel proud to be a part of it.’
While the situation with COVID-19 hasn’t created a whole lot of certainty for local business owners, Jungle Juice is staying optimistic, with plans to expand their range of offerings.
‘I guess, like everyone else at the market, we’re running a business with the uncertainty of what will happen in the next week and so on is not easy,’ Guido says.
‘But you have to take it as it comes and make the best of what’s happening at the moment and push forward.
‘For the rest of the year we would love to continue providing fresh produce and fresh juices and smoothies to the best standards and hopefully expand into making smoothie bowls.
‘Our aim at the moment is to keep learning and stay ambitious into making the business better and better.’
You can catch Guido and Natalia’s fresh, nutritious juices and smoothies every Friday under the trees at Mullum Farmers Markets 7–11am.
