Alexa Dippolito, Owner
Alexa Dippolito grew up in the suburbs of Pennsylvania just outside of Philadelphia. When she was thirteen she became a vegetarian and because of that she became much more involved in food and nutrition. She started cooking with her mom, Kathy, who was always been very supportive with her decision to be meat free. After high school Alexa attended Temple University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, while also working at a local smoothie shop. She loved working there but had so many of her own ideas that she dreamed of opening her own place.
A year later, Alexa, her parents Kathy and John, and her boyfriend Yuri decided to move into their vacation home in Nokomis. Looking for a new way of life away from the cold they new it was time to do something different. After living here for a few months they realized there were no smoothie and juice shops around that were all organic and really based on giving people a healthy product. With Alexa, now a holistic health coach, they had confidence that she was ready to start her own business. On March 1, 2014 they opened Island Organics on 231 West Miami Avenue in Venice. So far it's been going great and the City of Venice really seems to appreciate having a healthy option on the Island.
A special Thank You to all the businesses and individual members of our community who helped in making this mission a reality.
