Newton’s #1 sandwich shop, Judith’s Kitchen, is this week’s featured restaurant with sandwiches, salads, lunch plates, and ice-cold beverages. Judith’s is one of the few Newton restaurants that has partnered with Recirclable, offering take-out meals in reusable, recyclable, containers.

Marion Bonte, of Marion B., A Taste of France, is popping up with authentic, baked-early-Thursday-morning French pastries and breads. Marion delivers her baked goods to Newton doorsteps in baskets and containers designed to be reused, refilled, or composted. She’ll have fresh Baguettes, Cannelés, Madeleines, Brioches, Meringues, and more. Pre-orders help Marion gauge demand, and eliminate waste, and must be placed no later than midnight on Tuesday for pick up on Thursday. (Just select Allen Center as your pick up spot upon check out.) Marion will have limited baked goods available for sale at The Allen Center.

Newton Centre’s Derby Farm Flowers–which has been featured in Vogue for their floral arrangements–is taking pre-orders for their Summer Sunshine Bouquets–order online and they’ll be waiting for you at The Allen Center on Thursday. They will also have a selection of farm fresh flowers for purchase on-site. Derby Farm is showing off a selection of its colorful and sleek French Fermob patio furniture, along with home and garden accents. Derby Farm is a 1% FOR THE PLANET BUSINESS,—donating 1% of its annual sales to environmental causes.

Fulfilled Goods, Newton’s first low-waste refillery, is all about sustainability. With the feel of a general store, this gorgeous shop, located on Washington Street across from Whole Foods in Newtonville, is popping up with a selection of useful and sustainable merchandise, perfect for home use and gift-giving.

New Newton salon, Hustlestop, is popping up with some of their eco-friendly self-care products for hair, skin, and nails. Stop by to learn about their time and money-saving approach to hair and nail services, which gets clients get in and out the door quickly, looking polished without spending a day (and a paycheck). Hustlestop is located at 400 Homer Street, near the Newton Free Library.

And ThreadED, Fashion for a Future is popping up with racks of high-end, value-priced, new and like-new summer clothing for women. Sales of their garments fund scholarships, mentoring, and internships for under-served local youth pursuing higher education. Also, if you happen to have one or two pristine, high end pieces languishing in your closet that you would like to donate, please bring them to the pop up!
