I’m always amazed at the beautiful colors found in nature. Summer in the Pacific Northwest produces some of the most vibrant examples of natural color in the form of locally grown fruits. I’ve been taking advantage of these fruits to bring gorgeous color to my ice creams and sorbets. Here are a few examples to feast your eyes upon!
Blueberry sorbet and blackberry ice cream.
Back to front: peach and apricot sorbet, blackberry ice cream and vanilla ice cream.
Strawberry sorbet, cucumber sorbet and vanilla ice cream.

It’s so hard to believe that in just over a week I’ll be back out at the Columbia City Farmers Market scooping ice cream for all of the familiar faces I’ve come to love over the years. It’s been a great winter, full of lots of fun things, but my favorite time of year is upon us: farmers market season! The gorgeous weather we had yesterday made me realize that summertime is not so very far off.
I am excited to announce that I will be scooping it up at the Renton Farmers Market this summer, every Tuesday starting June 4th. This is a new market for me and I am excited to bring Half Pint to the Renton community. Being a resident of Columbia City myself, Renton feels like just a hop, skip and a jump away and I am excited to be spending some time in a new neighborhood!
That said, Half Pint will still be at it’s ol’ faithful markets: Columbia City on Wednesdays, Lake City on Thursdays and Phinney Ridge on Fridays. I’m so looking forward to seeing all of my regular customers and to meeting some new ones! Here’s to a HOT and sunny summer ahead! Now I’m off to figure out flavors for the first week…
