The Scoop on Jeni’s in Clintonville

September 23rd, 2010    •  by Andy    •   No Comments »

Local ice-cream legend (and valued Columbus Food Adventures partner) Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is opening their newest location in Clintonville on October 1st! And, it’s not just any Jeni’s – in addition to everything that makes any Jeni’s store an instant neighborhood hotspot, this location also includes the additions of freshly brewed Stauf’s coffee and –  oooh yeah – a sundae bar. Aaaand… because all of that by itself just wouldn’t be quite cool enough, the interior of their new space will be built using reclaimed wood from a 100 year old Knox county barn. Their new shop is located at 4247 […]

Earth Day Celebration 2010

As soon as I heard about the tour of Jeni's I called to book a spot and I am so glad that I did. This rare behind the scenes tour guided by Jeni was limited to twenty people (the reason became obvious as we squeezed into the kitchen and completely disrupted production) and had a wait-list of 50 plus.

Columbus appreciation

January 19th, 2009    •  by Bethia    •   4 Comments »

One of the things that I am really appreciating about Columbus at the moment is the fact that I can buy local Ohio foods even in January. It is easy in the summer to buy local foods when there is abundant local produce but in the winter it is much more harder to find local foods, and more exciting when you do. Luckily the Greener Grocer makes finding local foods much easier. Over the last couple of weeks, I have noticed the following local Ohio foods: carnival squash (Northridge Farm), potatoes (Wayward Seed), apples (Eschleman Fruit Farm), sprouts (Sunsprout farm) mushrooms […]
