Though the summer heat has subsided somewhat, our desire for all things frozen has not. So why not satisfy your cravings this Sunday, August 4, at the Creme de la Creme Ice Cream Bonanza.
Part of the recurring Brooklyn Flea at The Piazza at Schmidt’s, and accompanying the 2nd Street Festival, this weekend’s event will include four top Philly vendors: Bassett’s, Capogiro, Lil’ Pop Shop, and Little Baby’s, as well as two out-of-towners, The Bent Spoon from Princeton and Alchemy Creamery from Brooklyn. Vendors will feature a variety of flavors, plus vegan and gluten-free options. Alchemy Creamery is all dairy-free and gluten-free all the time anyway, and Little Baby’s will provide both regular and vegan selections, because that’s just how they roll.
Saturday, the Vendy Awards were once again held in Philadelphia. The event brought hundreds to Penn Treaty Park where nominated food trucks competed for four awards, including savory, sweet, “Messy Yet Tasty” and the Vendy Cup.
King of Falafel, which you can find daily at 16th and JFK Boulevard won the big award. Lil’ Pop Shop repeated as the winner of the sweet category and The Cow & the Curd brought home the savory award as well as the Tide stain stick’s “Messy Yet Tasty” award.
