Supercharge greens

SuperCharge! Foods is a funky smoothie and juice bar/community center/mini farm on East Washington Ave. Nichole got a rather filling "shamrock shake" smoothie (which included a touch if mint and cocoa) and JM got a quite tasty juice. We got to peek behind the counter into the sprouting area, filled with young greens like mustard, peas, basil and sunflowers. You cannot get much fresher than this. The greens go into the packaged salads and some salads make it to the shelves of Hy-Vee and other retailers in town.

We just popped in for a smoothie on this first visit, which itself seems like the most touristy possible way to experience the place, which has as its mission to be a community center too. They have an event space that hosts classes and workshops, a shelf of resource books, a large comfy table for enjoying prepared food, and a small grocery offering products from YumButter, Native Food Network, and more.

The near-east side would likely feel incomplete without places like this. SuperCharge! Foods is on the roster for the Madison Public Market when it opens in 2020 - til then, their earnest and healthy vibe is a great thing where it's at.
