Nicole Berrie | November 4 - November 7

Nicole Berrie, founder of food and well-being website bonberi.com and plant-based NYC convenience store Bonberi Mart, presents a guide to food-combining and intuitive eating for a healthier, more balanced way of living. Berrie’s career first began in the fashion industry at ELLE Magazine and later as associate features editor at Vanity Fair. Seeking to find a bridge between her personal interest in healing and wellness and a high-end editorial concept, Berrie founded bonberi.com, featuring the wellness regimens of designers, models, chefs, influencers and more as well as her original plant- based recipes. In September 2018, she opened Bonberi Mart, a plant-based mart in New York’s West Village featuring grab- and-go vegan dishes and array of juices and smoothies as well as a curated selection of holistic, nontoxic retail. Inspired by her personal learnings and lived experiences, Berrie’s ultimate goal is to lead people back to trusting themselves and their bodies' intuitive cues to eating.
