Clean Market, a Manhattan-based all-things-wellness destination, is making moves.
Step inside. This upscale shop combines all the most popular aspects of wellness under one roof. The market offers clean beauty and skin products, apothecary items, and supplements. A cafe-style functional food and tonic bar serves superfood smoothies, bowls, power shots, and lattes featuring mix-ins from partners like Moon Juice.
Plus, the space also features a thermo-therapy lounge complete with infrared saunas and cryotherapy treatments, as well as a vitamin IV drip lounge.
The A-team. Jeffrey Weinhaus, president and chief development officer at Equinox, teamed up with cookbook author and Clean Food Dirty City blogger Lily Kunin to start Clean Market. The company’s early backers and seed investors are a who’s who of fitness, wellness, and real estate players including,
- Equinox chief executive Harvey Spevak
- Able Partners, a venture capital firm founded and run by Lisa Blau and Amanda Eilian.
- Jeff Blau, CEO of the real estate firm that owns Equinox, The Related Cos.
- Ben Schall, CEO of Seritage Growth Properties
Next up. Clean Market opened its first location in 2018 on East 54th Street in Midtown. Now shuttering the original storefront, the brand is set to open new locations at Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan, 40 Bleecker Street, and 1177 Broadway.
According to Weinhaus, after Clean Market establishes five or six NYC locations, the store will prove its model in other major markets like Boston or Dallas. Speaking with Crain’s New York Business, Weinhaus said the company is nearing a deal that would bring a Clean Market to the Vegas Strip in early-2020.
