Success Story: Local Woman’s Carrot Juice Goes from Sidewalk to Shelves

If you’ve been to the local farmer’s market over the past several years, chances are good that you’ve at some point tried Donna McCarthy’s delicious homemade carrot juice.

Donna has been making her preservative free, fresh carrot juice for over 15-years and has found great success in selling her juice by the bottle (and sometimes case) at the local farmer’s market. According to Donna, she started selling her popular juice (per the encouragement of her friends and family) at the farmer’s market about 4-years ago, and claims she has hardly missed a week.

Donna’s special homemade carrot juice has won several ‘juice of the year’ awards, so it’s no surprise that it eventually caught the attention of some big brands. According to Donna, she has received various offers over the year, but none that really sparked her interest.

That is until – the popular health food store Fresh Living Grocery reached-out at the beginning of 2017 reached out with an offer she couldn’t refuse.

Lucky for us…beginning July-2017, we won’t have to wait for Sunday to roll around if we’re craving some of Donna’s carrot juice, we can just drop by our local Fresh Living Grocery and pick-up a bottle.

Donna told reporters that it’s currently unclear how much her popular juice will be selling for once it hits the shelves, but she is hopeful that the price will be very similar to the price tag that fans of her carrot juice have come to expect at the farmer’s market.
