If you’re a long-time Bellingham resident, summertime might just be synonymous with Mallard Ice Cream – a community fixture since 2001. Their ice cream is lovingly made with over an hour of human time per batch. Owner Ben Scholtz crafted a simple ice cream recipe made with organic cane sugar and a high butter fat mix — and its popularity speaks to its deliciousness.

Bonus: When you buy a scoop (or two, or three) at Mallard, you can rest-assured that their employees are being paid a living wage and that Mallard Ice Cream supports local community arts organizations including Elizabeth Park Summer Concert Series, the Idiom Theater, and more.
