Five months ago we found out that Peddler’s Creamery was coming to the ground floor retail space at the recently completed New Genesis Apartments near 5th and Main. We also found out that this is no ordinary ice cream shop. What makes Peddler’s Creamery different from others is the way they make their ice cream. The ice cream is churned by man power using specially retrofitted bicycles. Now we know how the store gets its name. There will be an assortment of organic dairy and non-dairy ice cream and other frozen desserts and treats.
Build out inside Peddler’s Creamery is mostly complete and must pass city/county health, fire, safety inspections before it can open for business. The owner, Edward Belden, tells me that it should be open by April at the latest.
