Red Wagon Creamery is, in my opinion, one of the best Ice Cream shops in Oregon. Not only are all of their handcrafted ice creams popping with flavor but, you can tell that everything is made with care. Four years ago Emily and Stewart, owners and operators of Red Wagon Creamery, sat down together and decided that they wanted to make really GOOD ice cream– emphasis on the GOOD because when you take a bite of their mint chocolate chip ice cream, that is what you are tasting–no fillers, no artificial flavors. They also make it a point to showcase local ingredients. They wanted to get back to natural flavors, pure ice cream. Their five year plan started by selling their creams out of a cart. Eventually they moved to two carts then before they knew it they were able to open their store, faster than they had planned! I had the opportunity to taste all of their flavors, again, as well as go behind the scenes on a shopping trip with them to the Saturday Market.
