— Adam’s Juice Bar is one of the hip new businesses behind the renaissance in the Port Jervis business district. A few miles from Matamoras-Port Jervis Bridge, the new shop is keeping patrons energized with smoothies and blended juices, who watch as their orders are freshly made just for them.

Owner Adam Schoch gets help from his supportive family, who first roused his interest in healthy eating and habits.

“Instead of a heavy lunch, we’d make smoothies or juices at home,” he recalls.

Schoch's stepdad, Michael Harripersad, who works in the city, brought the idea back home and helped him get started. His little brother, Ben, 14, and his mom, Kim, help at the juice bar when needed.

The juice bar open in late June and is doing well with a clientele that comes through word of mouth.

“We’ve had nothing but good feedback around town,” Schoch said.

The non-dairy offerings include almond and other nut butter and juice blended with fruit and fruit juices. The “Juice Shots” offerings have names like “Elixir." Yogurt bowls with fruits and nuts are also available.

Seating is both indoors and out, with takeouts also offered.

The smoothies and juices come in two sizes, with all ingredients shown on the menu, and cost under $10.

“In five years I hope Port becomes the place to be,” Schoch said. “I'm really excited to see what it looks like when it's finished about building and renaissance.”

Adam’s Juice Bar is located at 78 Front St., Suite 62, Port Jervis. The number is 845-699-8942.
