Fresh Squeezed Juices

rowjo Sep 10, 2008 01:29 PM

Is there anywhere that I can get plain fresh squeezed juices to order? I need about a quart of just plain fresh squeezed lemon juice for a party and I don't have my own juicer or the time to sqeeze that much juice by hand.

Anything near Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, North Hollywood, Burbank would be a big plus.

Thanks very much!

    No idea... but buy the lemons, go to like a Robeks and see if they'll do it for you (you should buy something there, obviously).

      I think going in to one of those places when they're slow and asking them if and when might it be possible (hint big tip) could work...

      I used to work at the supermarkets decades ago - they used to squeeze fresh orange juice with their own machines but I don't think most markets do that anymore. If the OP can find a market that still has one of those machines, a quart would be a cinche... Does Fresh and Easy have one?

      Not sure how "fresh" it needs to be, but most grocery stores carry pure lemon or lime juice in those little yellow or green fruit-shaped bottles. I've bought them from my local Albertson's before to cook with.

        They don't taste remotely like the real deal, though -- I can't imagine making drinks or lemon curd with a quart of that stuff!

          The juice in those small plastic fruit-shaped bottles is the same re-constituted juice concentrate that comes in the large green glass bottles. Not fresh at all.

          You might try your local Fresh and Easy. I know they carry a killer unpasturized orange juice and fresh lemonade. They might have what you are looking for...

            Don't know about other Whole Foods Markets, but the one in Pasadena on Arroyo Pkwy has a fresh juice bar and I'm sure they'll squeeze fresh lemon juice for you.
