HUNTINGTON - Travis Lemon said when he and his partner Erin Dalton opened their unique market inside of a new downtown shopping plaza a year ago, the dream was to bring healthy options to Huntington in a fun environment while educating the community on high-quality nutritional supplements and nutrition rich food options.
"We have enjoyed watching our original vision change and grow," Lemon said.
Tulsia at The Market in the 800 block of Third Avenue in downtown Huntington is celebrating its one year anniversary on Saturday.
"We have been thrilled by the response to Tulsi," Lemon said. "The Huntington community has been very supportive. Being part of The Market has been very exciting. Working under the same roof with the other local businesses that make up The Market has been great. Everyone is so supportive and always ready to lend a hand or share a tip."
Lemon says on Saturday the shop will be running a discount all day, hosting a local plant pop up shop and giving away samples and goodies.
"We have expanded our own Tulsi brand of supplements to over 100 items and have recently started making our own organic fresh-pressed juices," Lemon said. "We still have a few other exciting ideas up our sleeves too."
Tulsi has partnered with PlusCBD, the top selling brand of hemp CBD, to bring one of its national educators to Huntington for a free consumer lecture on CBD. It will be at 6 p.m. June 20 in the Vandalia Room above The Peddler, Lemon said.
Dalton says looking forward, they want to continue to get feedback, as well as suggestions, about how Tulsi can help folks live their best life.
"People here have been so curious and supportive," Dalton said. "We want to continue feeding that curiosity by educating ourselves and hosting more community education lectures. Talking to people that are genuinely curious about how they can improve their lives and just don't have the time to weed through all the info that's out there. That's why we're so happy to be doing what we're doing."
