The popular Downtown Eastside hangout was known for its nutritious bowls, salads, smoothies, and toasts.

The team at Roots + Fruit cite an “extreme rental increase” as the reason for the closure. They also let patrons know they will be actively searching for a new location.

We are very sad to say that we will be closing our doors at 848 Powell st after Friday Aug 17. An extreme rental increase has forced us to search for a different location to move to.

We’d like to thank every one of our customers that has supported us in our year at this location.

We’ve made many new friends who have made coming to work everyday a pleasure and we’ve watched our business and brand grow strong because of you.

Please join us today and Friday and also continue to follow along as we search for our new location.

❤️ our team at Roots+Fruits
