EarthShake Returning to Locust Point with New Fort Ave. Location

| January 29, 2018 | 0 Comments

Smoothie and juice bar EarthShake, which opened its first location at 1648 E. Fort Ave. in late 2016 and then relocated to Fells Point last year, is returning to Locust Point with a new location at 1442 E. Fort Ave. The space was formerly an ice cream shop and deli, but has been vacant in recent years.

EarthShake’s Fells Point location will remain open.

EarthShake co-owner Jack Goldberg told that the move to Fells Point was simply a relocation to a space that better suited the company’s needs. “The goal was always to come back to Locust Point,” said Goldberg. “This is one of the greatest neighborhoods in Baltimore.”

He noted that EarthShake originally considered the space at 1442 E. Fort Ave. in 2016 and that business was good in Locust Point. He also said that EarthShake did a lot of events with Under Armour.

The building at 1442 E. Fort Ave. is currently under renovation and will include the first-floor juice bar space, a second-story apartment, and basement storage. EarthShake will be leasing the entire building and is hoping to open in April.

EarthShake is repainting the exterior of the storefront and adding large signage in the windows. The dining space at EarthShake will have about eight tables.

EarthShake will serve cold-pressed juices made in house, as well as smoothies, all-natural bowls, protein balls, vegan chili, and Zeke’s nitro cold brew. Everything served at EarthShake will use all-natural ingredients with no added sugars or dairy.

Juices will include the Hurricane with orange, pineapple, and wheat grass; the CoalMiner with charcoal, agave, and lemon; Beer Root with beets, carrots, kale, ginger, and apple; Fruitful with kiwi, red grapes, pineapple, and wheat grass; and Turmerical with turmeric, carrot, ginger, and grapefruit.

Smoothies will include many similar flavors, but as a blend and not pressed as juice. EarthShake will also serve wheat grass shots.

Bowls, which cost $9, include acai bowls, dragon fruit bowls, pitaya bowls, avocado bowls, and natural cocoa bowls. Bowls can be served hot or cold and will include toppings such as granola, nuts, seeds, and bananas. Goldberg noted the bowls are good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and are also good for dessert as a replacement for ice cream.

All the materials, containers, and cleaning supplies at EarthShake will be “eco-friendly.”

EarthShake will have approximately six employees. I twill be open Saturday to Monday from 8am to 5pm , Tuesday to Thursday from 7am to 7pm, and Friday from 7pm to 6pm.

Goldberg owns EarthShake along with Antony Ruggerio. The team is hoping to open a location in Hampden next.
