One study by Social Hospitality valued the açaí berry market at $712 million in 2017 + predicted that it will grow at a steady rate of 12.71% by 2025. This growth is partly due to the steady influx of vibrant purple açaí bowl pictures on Instagram.

If you’re jumping on the açaí bowl bandwagon or you’re just craving a tropical treat during your sunny spring break, here are three locally-owned shops in Fort Worth for you to get your fruity fix.

Boulevard of Greens, 2700 Horne St. (next to the 24-hour Fitness)

Try this: Menu items are inspired by blue zones, so take your pick of locations with items like the Panama Bowl — a dragon fruit-and-mango concoction topped with banana and granola. Merge onto the boulevard of fruits and greens with the Venice Boulevard bowl. The green base may look like guacamole, but it’s actually a spinach-banana blend garnished with pineapple and coconut.

Pro tip: Spice up your açaí bowl by adding a gluten- and soy-free pumpkin walnut muffin on the side.

Righteous Foods, 3405 W. 7th St. (down the block from the UNT Health Science Center)

Try this: The organic açaí bowl is topped with house-made granola, bananas, and mixed berries. Add a salty sidekick with warm yuca fries or stick around for a lunchtime Righteous B.A.L.E.T. made with uncured niman ranch bacon, kumato tomato, avocado, baby greens, romesco, an organic egg, and black beans.

Pro tip: Grab a righteous T-shirt or beanie to go with your sick coffee cup from their online shop.

Juice Junkies, 925 Foch St. (Across from the Durty Crow)

Try this: Build your own bowl with a mixture of açaí, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, coconut, and granola. Then beef it up with superfood add-ons like pomegranate, walnut, chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, almond butter, flax seed, hemp seeds, chia seeds, maca powder, and spirulina.

Pro tip: Wash it down with a signature organic cold-pressed juice.
