It's time for our annual rhubarb trading! Do you have rhubarb growing out of control in your yard? Bring your rhubarb to our Midtown Test Kitchen and get ice cream coupons in exchange!
Tues, June 8th, 3-7p
Wed, June 16th, 3-7p
10lbs for 1 pint coupon,
4 lbs for 1 cone card
Last year's average trade was for ~12 pounds, but we have many people bring in just 4 lbs and have also received up to 100 lbs!
Rhubarb must be:
Mostly red/pink (we have found this works better for our ice cream purposes)
Trimmed of leaves
Clean (you don't need to trim the 'ground end', but please rinse off any dirt/debris from the stalk. If it is easier to just trim both ends, that will also work!)
We recommend harvesting as close to 'trading time' as possible. Bring your rhubarb in a large garbage bag or plastic shopping bag that you can leave with us. We will weigh it on a table in front of our Test Kitchen door (look for signs! You will not need to enter the Scoop Shop door).
Unfortunately, we are only able to accept rhubarb during the stated timeframes at this point. Please wear mask for the trade.
We wash and sanitize all rhubarb before using.
If we have the ability to trade for more rhubarb in another month for the 2nd harvest, we will post about it!
