Closed: New Family Naturals at Lake Anne Plaza

New Family Naturals is closed

New Family Naturals, the health food store and smoothie bar located at Lake Anne Plaza, has closed up shop.

Toya Tanis opened the location at 11414 Washington Plaza West in Summer 2012, after crowdsourcing some of the opening costs on Indiegogo.

The company raised $2,225 in donations to buy commercial sinks and retail refrigerators.

Tanis started New Family Naturals in 2011, mostly selling homemade kale chips and other snacks and juices at farmers markets, including the Saturday Reston Farmers Market at Lake Anne. After leasing the space at Lake Anne Plaza, Tanis remodeled the retail space with eco-friendly features.

Tanis could not be reached, but customers say she is going back to a catering and farmers market operation.
