If you haven’t heard of Auburn’s HeyDay Market, you will now. This lively food hall is home to nine vendors, each serving its own unique menu.

Eating healthy has never been this fun. The Veganish Market in Tuscaloosa not only serves up top-notch vegan burgers, but they offer delicious burrito bowls, smoothies, soups and more tasty and fresh items.

We recommend the “Palm Springs” smoothie for its sweet agave taste and refreshing mix of bananas and pineapple.

5. Agapé Juices | Foley

Coining “food that fuels,” Agape Juices is a must-try when in Foley.

Owners Stephanie Rhodes and Glenna Grant seek to make healthy juices and smoothies with real fruits and veggies, to support customers’ overall health and immune systems. Plus, we’ve heard locals rave about the “guilt-free” agape bowls.
