Once you step into the magical world of Farmer's Market at 3rd and Fairfax, it's hard to step out. I'm offering you a reason, right here...Carmela Ice Cream! Carmela got its start selling ice cream
at local farmers markets way back in 2007 and continues to use market- fresh produce and organic dairy in its small batch artisan ice cream shop right on 3rd Street. Seasonal flavors include Rose Petal, Earl Grey Tea, Strawberry Buttermilk, Cucumber Sorbet,
Raspberry Rose Sorbet, Peaches 'N' Cream, Lemon Verbena Vanilla Bean, Intelligentsia Espresso, and Blackberry Vanilla Bean Sorbet. Signature flavors such as Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate Cacao Nib, Lavender Honey and Mint Cacao Nib are always available. But
the flavor that takes my breath away is the signature Brown Sugar Vanilla Bean! ($3.75). Just one scoop of this sweet, creamy, rich, perfect confection sends me over the moon! The store itself is tiny, with a French country theme. Ice cream comes
in a small cup, waffle cup, or waffle cone. Gorgeous scalloped edged cookies encase ice cream to make sandwiches ($5) or are sold separately. Try everything, but you'll never get the Brown Sugar Vanilla Bean off your mind! Carmela Ice Cream 7920 West
