Local Ice Cream Opening in Chappaqua


Just in time for summer, Local Ice Cream is coming to Chappaqua — and to clarify, we are talking about an ice cream shop that is actually named Local. “Our town really needed a local ice cream shop,” says Chappaqua resident and owner Adam Strahl.

Strahl will be scooping organic ice cream straight from Ronnybrook Farm in Ancramdale, Columbia County, and serving it in glass dishes with metal spoons. If you can’t enjoy your frozen treat right there in the shop, the environmentally aware entrepreneur will send you on your way with eco-friendly containers. Local might become known for its natural ice cream (no preservatives or artificial coloring), but Strahl will also sell sandwiches, salads, and soups that are made with local ingredients. — Latoya West
