Sweet Harvest Shoppe Opens Second Location

Tara at Sweet Harvest Shoppe

Steve Farris, owner of Fit Social, a group fitness studio on 188 Main Street, in Poughkeepsie, has invited Sweet Harvest Shoppe—a superfood café with a location in Cold Spring—to take over the studio’s smoothie bar and make it their own. A soft opening took place October 8, 2022. One does not have to be a studio member to eat at the café.

Tara Sweet-Flagler, an exercise physiologist, wellness expert and owner of Sweet Harvest, was Farris’ professor 15 years ago at Dutchess Community College, where she still teaches. She opened her first café in 2020 with the mission of helping folks eat healthier and catering to those with celiac disease.

Farris and Sweet-Flagler are in the business of enriching people’s health through nutrition and fitness, and together they are.

Locations: Sweet Harvest Shoppe, 82 Main St., Cold Spring, NY; and 188 Main St., Poughkeepsie, NY. For more information, call 845.666.7390 or visit
