Some of Boston’s favorite spots are joining forces this summer to make your lunch and dinner a little sweeter. Beginning today with Blackbird Doughnuts, Sweetgreen welcomes three beloved brands to different local locations this summer. It starts today at 11 a.m. with free doughnut holes in Fenway and Back Bay, and picks up later this summer with Mother Juice and FoMu Ice Cream.

The first 200 guests at Sweetgreen locations in Fenway and Back Bay today will get lemon and local berry doughnut holes on the house, as long as supplies last. While it’s not Blackbird’s award-winning Boston cream bismarcks, they will certainly pair well with any of Sweetgreen’s signature salads. The fruity donuts embrace the local emphasis of Sweetgreen while still delivering on Blackbird’s punchy flavors—and if you’re having salad for lunch, why not follow it up with a doughnut?

When Sweetgreen arrived in Boston in 2013 by way of Washington, D.C., Bostonians were definitely receptive to the healthy, locally grown options. The salad chain has opened seven additional Boston-area locations since then.

Meanwhile, Blackbird is a Boston born establishment known for both raised donuts and cake donuts. It just expanded with a second location in Fenway. Mother Juice is also growing, with a new flagship store on Newbury Street. FoMu’s dairy-free ice creams have popped up with temporary locations around the city, plus a new South End location.

The Mother Juice pop-up will take place at Sweetgreen’s Prudential Center location on Wednesday July 26, at 11 a.m., while FoMu will come to Sweetgreen on Summer Street on August 2, at 5 p.m.
