Sweet Stuff at the Farmers Markets

I’m addicted to Seattle Farmers Markets. Besides the meat and produce being way better than what you find in the grocery store, there are lots of cocktail-making opportunities and PLENTY of desserts. What’s not to love? Recently I’ve been market hopping in order to try every micro ice creamery, of which there are many. Let’s start with Half Pint.

The flavors are fun, and tend towards the fruity. I fully enjoyed the vanilla and blueberry pints I bought (they go great with a fruity dessert, or just with some fresh fruit). The owner is from New England so you know she knows her ice cream! You can find Half Pint at the U-District Market, along with several other smaller markets. Next up was Whidbey Island Ice Cream Company, which has been around for years and makes not only excellent ice cream but these gourmet Klondike-type bars:

Lots of flavors of ice cream are available in these chocolate packages, and I got the peanut butter flavor because nothing says “chocolate, I love you” like peanut butter. And indeed it was love at first bite. The bars are available at the Wallingford Market along with several others, and also at some grocery stores (including, I was excited to find out, Madison Market). You can also buy the pints at some locations. Try ’em out while the sun lasts!
