Looks like Dirt, but probably tastes DELICIOUS
was our initial thought when discovering this Potted Ice Cream on Instagram. We haven’t seen anything like it, and the picture of red flower pots with a mint leaf coming out of the dirt definitely caught our eye.
Hashtag was #ICECREAM so we dug deeper into this Instagram profile “IceCreamGardenLA” and found that it was actually ice cream AND we could find them at a booth at the OC Night Market.
For those that don’t know of the OC Night Market, 626 Night Market, KTown Night Market or any sort of night markets, they are comprised of vendors ranging from clothing, jewelry, food, drinks, and talented performers such as singers, poets, bands, musicians, and more.
Currently, Ice Cream Garden LA can be found at private events, and the occasional night markets — OC Night Market, 626 Night Market, and K-Town Night Market. (They currently do not have a storefront.) The OC Night Market was where we met the dynamic duo Sophia and Art who were running the garden.
We opted for the Mint Chip Dirt Cup with crushed Oreos and a gummy worm, with a wooden spoon shoveled into the “dirt”. Looks like dirt, right? Well, it definitely didn’t taste like dirt. It was tasty and the unique display of the ice cream was different and much more fun than our normal cone or cup. They also have a second potted ice cream for an option — the Beach Cup. Again, looks like dirt, BUT tastes DELICIOUS!

You could even get a nice story to go along with your potted ice cream. Story might be: teddy graham is enjoying the beach life under an umbrella on his beach towel and sand… ( which was made from a sour belt and Nilla Wafers).
They have a variety of ice cream flavors to choose from, so pick your ice cream flavor, and your potted cup of choice and be sure to check them out at their next event the KTOWN NIGHT MARKET - on Oct 25th & 26th!
