If you like your ice cream only a few steps from the cow, then you should probably head over to the Sandy Springs Farmers Market this Saturday (6/5/2010).

Sweet Tea Ice Cream

Their menu lists the following flavors:

mint sweet tea
Sweet cream infused with black tea and local fresh mint, we recommend a mason jar & rocking chair for this one

Local wildflower honey ice cream with sweet, jewel-toned apricot waves, almost too pretty to eat – almost

blueberry buckle
Georgia-grown crushed blueberries swirled with a buttery pecan crumble, an ode to our favorite summer cobbler

lemon buttermilk sorbet
Luxurious local buttermilk and tart, punchy lemon churned into sweet-tart fluffy clouds; genuinely addictive

Here’s the full press release:


Small Batch, Handcrafted, Locally-Sourced Ice Creams and Sorbets to be Available Starting in June

ATLANTA (June 3, 2010) – The Westside Creamery announced today they will be unveiling their first batch of locally-sourced “farm to bowl” ice creams and sorbets, available to the public for purchase this Saturday.

Westside Creamery has partnered with Johnston Family Farm, a family owned and operated Georgia dairy that has been in continuous operation since 1956, for its supply of fresh milk and cream.

Everyone is invited to sample Atlanta’s newest sweet treat during its debut at the Sandy Springs Farmers Market on June 5, 2010, from 8:30am-12:30pm. Flavors available for purchase by the pint, cone, and scoop will include Mint Sweet Tea, Lemon Buttermilk Sorbet, Honey + Apricot, and Blueberry Buckle.

Westside Creamery is owned and operated by native Georgians Maggie Rentz and Greg Smith, who envision churning ice cream and sorbet year-round that captures the essence of each season, using ingredients grown and harvested around Georgia wherever possible.

Maggie Rentz, owner and creator of the Westside Creamery, describes the company’s mission: “Our goal is to consistently produce new, innovative creations, whether that be unique flavor combinations or new, luxurious twists on old standbys.  But just as important as our focus on flavor is our love of this community, its growers, and its consumers,” said Maggie, who herself grew up on a small farm in South Georgia.   “Our goal is to integrate healthy, sustainable, local food into our frozen confections, and to support and uplift our community in a collective celebration of one of the world’s greatest foods.”
