Blue Marble isn’t just an ice cream parlor. Named after the image of the Earth as seen from space, its existence reminds us that the planet is small, and the life on it, intimately connected.

Start with the ice cream: handmade in small batches by third generation dairy farmer and ice cream maker Matt White, using certified organic, grass-fed milk, organic sugar, and other sustainably produced ingredients (think vanilla, maple, chocolate).

Add a scoop of determination: to Blue Marble, consistency is key. The entire build-out of the Atlantic Avenue location is green. Meaning, from the reclaimed agricultural fiber tabletops to the natural clay (paint-free!) walls; from the use of 75% hydro- and 25% wind power to the 100% biodegradable serveware, this operation keeps sustainability at the core of their mission.

And a cherry on top: along with ice cream, the parlor offers fair trade and organic Irving Farm coffee and espresso, locally roasted in Hudson Valley; high-quality teas by the cup or in bulk from In Pursuit of Tea, a company committed to supporting small farm teas produced in rural Asia; fine chocolates purchased fair trade from Divine Chocolates, part-owned by Kuapa Kokoo, a Ghanian chocolate collective; bagels from neighbors Bergen Bagels, and everything from muffins to croissants to cookies to biscotti by the Red Hook fave, Baked.

Organic, sustainable, global, local. Unbeatably delicious. Does it get any better?

Well, yes. Aside from churning up the best ice cream in town (and using a web of equally conscious companies to do it), they’re working to create a not-for-profit organization, Blue Marble Dreams, to foster sustainable community growth in areas with ample dairy supplies. Blue Marble Dreams will begin work in Huye, Rwanda, training women in ice cream production, creating a reliable market for dairy farmers, and offering children free scoops of joy.

Blue Marble is a small store serving ice cream by the scoop or hand-packed pint, dedicated to changing the way we consume. Our favorite: a scoop of ginger with a cup of Earl Grey. May your ice cream journeys here be as simple, joyful, and luscious.

Delivery (by bicycle!) available.
