Busy Busy August

August has been a BUSY month for Half Pint! Lots of farmers markets, special events…we’ve been elbow deep in ice cream for weeks.

Last week we participated in a really cool event at Tom Douglas’s Palace Ballroom. It was an ice cream social! Several artisan ice cream companies participated including Half Pint, Parfait, Empire Ice Cream, Poco Caretto, Full Tilt, Molly Moon and The Dahlia Bakery. Adults and children alike flocked to the Ballroom for this ice cream extravaganza and enjoyed samples from all of the ice cream companies, as well as games, delicious ancho chili corn on the cob, pinball (courtesy of Full Tilt!) and a photo booth. It was a great time!

This past Sunday Half Pint was lucky to be a part of the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance‘s An Incredible Feast. This fundraiser for the NFMA paired farms up with local chefs, who created delicious dishes using fresh produce from that particular farm. Half Pint scooped up little cones and cups of Fresh Watermelon-Mint Sorbet, which was made using watermelons from Tonnemaker Family Orchards. It was a lovely evening filled with food, fun and farmers!

We’ve also been busy scooping ice cream at lots of parties and other events. If you’re interested in having Half Pint scoop ice cream at your next event, drop us a line and let us know what you’re looking for!

It’s shaping up to be a gorgeous weekend. Check out the forecast. So, come on out to your local farmers market, have some ice cream and say hello. We’d love to see you!
