Where have you been all of our lives, Organic Pharmer? Created by a leading functional medicine physician, an integrative pharmacist, two macrobiotic chefs (formerly Gwyneth Paltrow’s personal chefs), and an artist, there is literally no other eatery in Westchester that can compare.
Organic Pharmer’s Chickpeas & Dandelion Greens
Officially opening its doors this week, Organic Pharmer holds the distinct honor of being the first 100% organic food and beverage cafe in our area. And thanks to Susan Blum, MD — a leader in the fast-growing field of functional medicine, one of Dr. Oz’s Fantastic Four, and author of the bestselling book, The Immune System Recovery Plan — it is also the first ever 100% organic food and beverage establishment with a medical doctor on hand to collaborate with chefs to ensure that every ingredient has a medical reason and health benefit.
“From a functional food as medicine point of view, it is important to produce food that is not only anti-inflammatory—which means gluten, dairy, soy, corn and egg free—but also to make food low in sugar and high in healthy fats and vegetarian protein,” explains Susan Blum, MD of Organic Pharmer.

Regardless of your philosophy when it comes to nutrition, the food speaks for itself. Their menu features a dream-come-true blend of healthy, tasty offerings that we bet your little ones will be just as excited about too. Highlights include Creamy Hummus with Hempseed Z’ataar ($7.50), Quinoa Sushi with Tempeh & Vegetables ($12), Kale & Cauliflower Caesar Salad ($11), Gluten-free baked goods, decadent puddings & parfaits, energizing nut & fruit blends, crispy kale & veggie chips and fruit & veggie smoothies. In addition, Organic Pharmer will introduce ‘Little Pharmers’ next month, a complete lunch box for kids that will include a main dish, a healthy treat and a kid-friendly (low sugar) juice.
“Our customers are extremely health conscious and want to be able to give their children the same pure, clean foods they eat themselves. And once they do, the difference is not only obvious, it’s life-changing,” shares Michael Altman, Rph of Organic Pharmer.

Additional menu items include 100% organic cold-pressed, health-supportive juices and smoothies ($7.50-$9.75), as well as medically sound detoxes and cleanses ($65 and up). Delivery will be available soon throughout Westchester and Southern Fairfield counties, and they also have a membership program where you can receive special offers and a discount on products. The Rye Ridge Shopping Center will serve as their flagship location, however we are told that expansion plans are already underway.
