Follow us along as we name drop some of our favorite small businesses in the city. Whether you’re soaking up this sun this summer, sipping like a pro, or shopping for your space, we’ve got you.
Coming Soon NY
Located in the Lower East Side, this home décor shop puts your aunt’s attic to shame. From rugs and vases to coasters and glass pipes, Coming Soon is the perfect place to browse for gifts or treat yourself to a one‑of‑a‑kind piece. They also offer in store pickup when you buy online!
The Goods Mart
Snacks, slushies, Sweet Reason, oh my! Located in Soho, The Goods Mart is a socially conscious convenience store that prides itself on offering healthier alternatives to some of your favorite treats. And yes, our friends at The Goods Mart also sell Sweet Reason!
Elizabeth Street Garden
Tucked away in Soho’s bustling neighborhood lives community green space, Elizabeth Street Garden. The local favorite has nearly 200 years of history as a recreational space and is well‑loved by both frequent visitors and those who happen to stumble upon it. On a Sunday afternoon, this is our favorite place to relax with a book, a coffee, and of course, a Sweet Reason.
This neighborhood market is tiny, but mighty. Located in the Lower East Side, Dimes Market offers locals a hub for fresh produce, homewares, books and skincare. If you’re spending the day in the area, make sure to also check out its sister restaurant, Dimes NYC, for Californian‑style fare.
This must‑see homeware shop in the Lower East Side is here for a good time, not a long time. Beverly showcases nostalgic home pieces inspired by her own Vietnamese heritage, all arranged beautifully in a quaint, dim‑lit space. If you’re in the area, you won’t want to miss this one‑stop‑shop!
Tompkins Square Park
Surrounded by tall trees + flowers blooming in the spring, you can find this beloved park in the heart of Alphabet City. Tompkins Square is the perfect place to sip on a Sweet Reason, have a picnic with friends, or to simply just people watch. If you’re feeling hungry, make sure to stop by Tompkins Square Bagels, just 30 seconds away.
With house‑made chai to‑go, a long list of pastries, and a cozy workspace, Pause Café fits the bill. Should an afternoon slump kick in, you’re just a few steps from caffeine or cannabis, in Sweet Reason form, of course! Find your favorite AM flavors inside.
Goods For The Study
We could spend hours in this store, no exaggeration. Located in Soho (or Greenwich Village), McNally Jackson Bookstore brings you Goods for the Study. This shop is home to greeting cards, stationary, and journals galore. If you’re taking a day for yourself, stop by for a little retail therapy.
This family‑owned, neighborhood plant shop is one big mood booster. Have a coffee, take home a plant, and flash a smile while doing it! There are many locations in the city, but we always find ourselves coming back to the Soho spot. They also offer delivery within NYC, perfect for this upcoming Mother’s Day!
