First Black-owned juice bar opens in South Minneapolis

Catiesha Pierson started making her own juice as a way to get her son to eat more fruits and vegetables. She would post her creations on Instagram and people started taking notice. Eventually, she started making and delivering fresh-pressed juices for friends and family when she wasn’t working at her full-time job. It became her passion and she decided to pursue it, quitting her job and signing a lease on a space in South Minneapolis. Pierson opened The Dripping Root last week at the intersection of Minnehaha Ave & 40th St. She sold out every single day. Her top-seller is the Nipsey Drip which is made up of passion fruit, guava, lemon, pineapple, Blue Majik and apple.
