"Wow, this is like Well+Good come to life," video producer Molly O'Brien murmurs to me as we walk into W+G Council member Lily Kunin's brand new Clean Market. And she was right: From the adaptogenic powders lining the shelves, Bulletproof coffee and collagen lattes readily available, and treatments like cryotherapy, infrared saunas, facials, and IV drips, it's like the real-life version of what we cover on a regular basis. Is this heaven?
"Clean Market is a space for smart wellness," Kunin says, explaining the concept. "We have a functional smoothie and tonic bar, a smart supplement market, modern apothecary, and then we have our services." Brands such as Moon Juice, Sun Potion, Four Sigmatic, CAP Beauty, and The Nue Co. line the shelves and at the cafe, besides functional lattes (made through a partnership with Moon Juice), you can order a super smoothie, smoothie bowl, or avocado toast. And you can add CBD to anything you freakin' want.
"I really wanted to create a sanctuary and oasis away from the hustle and bustle of New York City and bring lots of services and healthy products directly to a storefront." —Lily Kunin
"I really wanted to create a sanctuary and oasis away from the hustle and bustle of New York City and bring lots of services and healthy products directly to a storefront," Kunin says. All the brands she handpicked are non-toxic, and on the supplement front, everything is medical-grade and backed by clinical testing.
When it comes to the services, the IV drips are perhaps the most innovative, with an extensive menu catering to everything from tired travelers to customers looking for a beauty boost. "When you come in, you get a private consultation and are then given a custom drip," Kunin explains.
