Our Shop in Chelsea Market Is Finally Open!



We're here! We're here we're here we're here!! We're finally heeeeere!!!!

It's been a long time coming, but our shop in Chelsea Market has finally opened its doors, right on point for summer.

The response so far has been fantastic. One of our Twitter tweeps, who follows us even though she lives in California, came in with her family 'cause she happened to be in town. Several people who work in the building have come by for a pop every day since we opened. Our Manhattan-dwelling Brooklyn Flea customers are psyched to access pops midweek, all day, whenever. Our neighbors, particularly at Lucy's Whey, Bar Suzette, Dickson's Farmstand Meats, Gramercy Park Flower Shop, Jacques Torres, and One Lucky Duck have been overwhelmingly welcoming. David's and Nathalie's parents both sent potted plants on opening day, but Joel's parents, who live in Chicago, took the cake by showing up unannounced at the market on opening day!

We feel right at home....



Here's what the press has to say about our Chelsea Market shop opening:

If you haven't come by yet.....what are you waiting for??

Here are a few of the flavors we've cooked up for this week/weekend.
  • Spiced Rhubarb
  • Blackberry & Lemon Verbena
  • 2-tone Blackberry & Sour Cherry
  • Plum, Organic Yogurt and Tarragon (this one's the JAM!! Go Joel!)
  • Raspberry & cream
And the best news we've heard in a long time...real-live rhubarb has been spotted at the farmer's market. If that don't herald the growing season, we don't know what does!

See you this weekend at the Brooklyn Flea as usual.....and at Chelsea Market!!!

Stopped in to try the spiced rhubarb and it's ridiculously good! Totally didn't expect actual chunks of rhubarb in there. Will be back for more asap.

p.s. - i know it's a tad masochistic, but any way we can get a carb count on the pops? would help to figure out how many i can eat in a week!

So it is the Chelsea Market opening, My sister kept on telling stories about your great product. That is more than a small business. Payroll service in there surely is great. (Wishing to be an employee) (And acting as adviser as well.hehe)

Do not be so focused in payroll,tax services details should be in mind too!
