For ice cream fans, scoring a first-rate frozen treat from Udder Delights means stalking the local farmers markets, hitting up the cooler at RoRo's Bodega 420, or making a trip to the company's only store in Gilbert.
But now, there's one more place to find the farm-owned kitchen's ice cream and other top-notch dairy products: Scottsdale. Specifically, in the new Edible Exchange marketplace at 8700 East Via de Ventura in Scottsdale (approximately Pima Road and Via de Ventura).
Here's what shoppers can expect.
Owned by The Barter Group, a local company that facilitates trade between small businesses in Phoenix, the Edible Exchange market will stock Udder Delights' award-winning ice cream as well as its sorbet, frozen yogurt, butter, milk, farmer's cheese, cheesecakes, and pastries.
Ice cream flavors ($7.50/pint) include the signature Superstition Farm (made with chocolate, cocoa, hazelnuts, and Nutella), salted caramel, and mint chocolate chip as well as more unique tastes like black licorice and sour apple. Shoppers can also score a variety of Udder Delights' butters like sea salt and vanilla, cheeses such as salsa verde and herbs de Provence, and special order artisan pastries, cinnamon rolls, and cakes.
The Edible Exchange market is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cash and barter dollars are accepted.
More local food artisans will debut at the Edible Exchange market in the coming months. Watch the group's Facebook page for details.
