It’s finally open! Trickling Springs Creamery at Eastern Market (720 C St. SE) staged their soft opening Friday, August 3rd, opening the doors and serving ice cream to excited Hill Residents.
Manager Daniel Burdge said the company is really excited about the new store. “This has been a five-year goal of ours,” he said.
The store dishes out their own hard-serve ice cream in sixteen flavors, such as chocolate peanut-butter, cookies n cream, and strawberry, two of which will rotate and the rest remaining constant.
They will also serve Nitro coffee from Compass coffee, and in the freezer, Trickling Spring dairy products and what Burdge calls ‘dairy case items’ such as orange juice and sauerkraut.
Something to look for at the grand opening August 18th: by that date, Burdge says, the store will sell homemade cookies.
“Our goal is to support small, local agriculture operations, mainly dairy,” said Burdge, who is also the Head of Retail at Trickling Springs. “Included in that is grass-feed, GMO-free vegan values, and supply really high quality, minimally-processed dairy.”
Burdge manages both the Eastern Market and Union Market locations, a feat he says is only possible because of his strong, DC-based team. He said the company is looking to hire four to five more employees over the next couple of weeks. Interested parties can contact him by email at [email protected]
