We use exclusively organic produce for our juices. If we can’t find it organic then we will leave it out of our juice and substitute a different vegetable, fruit or nut. This is our pledge to you. Once in a while, we will use almond butter that is not 100% organic. This is based on availability. We use only non-GMO products.
We want to make being healthy simple for you. We know how hard it can be to eat clean in a world that is moving fast. You have kids, a job, a partner, hopes, dreams and limited time.

She has infused each meal, smoothie and juice with combinations that will excite the taste buds and nourish your body. Our foods are superfood filled and perfectly balanced for flavor and nutrition.
Mike and Summer started Local Juicery in 2014 with a heart focused goal in mind, to make healthy food available and accessible everyone. "We wanted to create a place that would bring together families and friends even if they all ate in different ways" says Summer.

SUMMER + MIKE
Summer Sanders is a certified raw food chef, author, blogger, plant-based health coach, mama, and wellness enthusiast. Working in San Francisco as a makeup artist and in the music industry took a toll on Summer's health. Late nights, cocktail parties and music events packed on the pounds and monopolized her time. She was disconnected from her true self, struggled with disordered eating and felt uncomfortable in her own body.
Looking inward one evening, she realized her body and spirit needed a major shift. She wanted true connection and self-love. Summer started her journey to optimal health immediately by shifting to a 'plant strong' diet. Summer began to feed her body with care and love, she felt her heart open and her thinking shift. She no longer struggled with weight, she felt peace with food and secure in her body. Summer was driven to share her findings with the world... Local Juicery was born!
Summer believes that health is far more than just what we eat, it's what we think and how we feel. Her hope is to share inspirations and information that will help you create your perfect lifestyle.
Mike Sanders is a former Naval Officer where he served under the United States Special Operations Command.
Mike’s passion for organically sourced, plant-based cuisine developed over several years after sustained dietary neglect. Following a long deployment to Afghanistan, his dreary health led him to seek focused nutrition consulting from Summer. Immediately, she set him on a healing course with a consistent regimen of whole foods, plant-based cuisine, and fresh juicing daily. The transformation he experienced was astounding. Mike felt like a new man, living at levels of vitality and mental acuity previously unknown to him.
Mike currently follows a modified Paleo diet and adheres to ethically and organically sourced ingredients. He is an advocate among his fellow service members for dietary awareness and conscious eating.

Our juice is! You have to know about your juice. Cold-pressed with no HPP is the key. We don't do anything to our juice but wash, press and bottle. Juice must be organic, must be cold-pressed and can't be pasteurized if you want to benefit from it. Otherwise, you're drinking a cocktail of sugar and pesticides. Drinking your juice within 72 hours is ideal for getting the highest nutrition.
We are not a 100% vegan shop. We carry organic grass-fed butter and very high-quality organic whey protein. We have a little something for everyone. We bet you'll love the creamy dreamy cacao pudding or the classic almond mylk.
Our juice is made with incredible integrity and love. We press our juice on site where you can see our process. There is no transportation involved, we press with 25 thousand pounds of pressure to unlock the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables and then it hits our shelves for your consumption. We never treat juice with HPP, we only use organic produce, we love what we do!
Dr. Norman Walker originally founded the cold-press method. It is now regarded as the most nutritious way to enjoy and benefit from juice. The fruits and vegetables are put into a triturator that gently turns the food into a pulp, and then apply over 25,000 pounds of pressure to the pulp. The slow pressing process ensures every bit of nutrient-dense life force is extracted out of the pulp and delivered into your juice unharmed, with all live enzymes intact. Our Cold-pressed juice can be stored for 72 hours (3 days) and still keeps its enzymes, minerals, and life-force. This allows us to provide you with cleanses.
We believe in freshly made juices with no HPP. HPP stands for high-pressure processing. This is a method of preserving that is achieved by using a ton of pressure. You find these kinds of juices on the shelves in supermarkets and they have a shelf life over 21 days.
We use NO HPP at Local Juicery. We press our juice in small batches on site every day to ensure that you are the most nutritionally powerful juice available. We always suggest that you drink the juice as soon as possible. That said, the shelf life is anywhere from 3 to 5 days depending on the product. All of our juices, milks and packaged foods have a consume by date on them that is applied on the day of production.
