Skyebird Juice Bar and Experimental Kitchen


Cold-pressed juice, kombucha and kale chips are just a few of the raw concoctions you’ll find at the Skyebird stall at East End Market – all made from organic, non-GMO produce. The business was named after owners Devin and Krystal Edwards’ daughter Skye, with a mission to raise community awareness of healthy, unadulterated, nutrient-rich foods.

The end goal: to educate kids about eating real food and staying healthy for life. Krystal visits schools in the area to give presentations and tastings to kids in the hopes of spreading the juicy news.

“We use all-glass containers. There are no additives. Everything is produced in small batches of about a gallon. It’s a passion project,” says Krystal. The menu changes every day, depending on what’s available. “We get produce in, whatever’s in season, and we start to play. Our chef, Jessica, shares our mission and our vision. We collaborate and create,” she says. The lavender-scented kombucha is a favorite, as well as the avocado salad, served in Mason jars with a generous pile of the house-fermented kimchi.
