Local ice cream from Pumphouse Creamery!

June is a great time to try this locally-made ice cream, and not just because the weather’s warmer, but because it’s on sale the whole month long.

The handcrafted ice cream is conceptualized, created and churned by Barb Zapzalka, the owner of Pumphouse Creamery, (featured in the Star Tribune‘s Taste 50: Women rule Minnesota food scene) who opened the shop in 2003.  Sourcing natural and organic ingredients and utilizing our local farmers produce is key to making quality ice cream with integrity – honest to goodness ingredients.

Each of our ice cream has a story, which starts with using milk and cream top dairy brought to Pumphouse each week by Crystal Ball Farm in Osceola, WI. Pumphouse uses fresh local strawberries and other Minnesota berries year-round by harvesting them in season and freezing nature’s goodness.  Mississippi Market carries 4 flavors of Pumphouse Creamery Ice Cream:  Vanilla, Chocolate, Mint Chocolate and Caramel Pecan.

Our refrigerated section highlights all of your favorite fresh and natural refrigerated food items. Mississippi Market offers a plethora of refrigerated meat alternatives such as tofu, tempeh, and seitan, fermented products such as pickles, and kimchi, as well as natural ready-to-bake items, hummus and other spreads and dips.

Our frozen foods department features choices ranging from traditional “convenience” foods to convenient natural alternatives. Mississippi Market offers organic frozen vegetables and fruits, entrees, pizzas, and snacks all which make healthier eating quick and easy. We also carry a delicious variety of local and traditional desserts for the dairy and non-dairy enthusiast alike!
