Weckerly’s Ice Cream Sandwiches

In late autumn of 2012, a little ice cream company was born in the Spruce Hill Community of West Philadelphia. Inside the kitchen at the Green Line Café, tucked away in a corner, veteran pastry chef Jen Satinsky began Weckerly’s Ice Cream. With careful preparation and reverence for each lovely ingredient, she slowly cooked, steeped, cooled, churned and froze rich French-style ice cream one small batch at a time.

Nestled in a restored textile factory among artists, craftspeople, chefs and bakers, Jen and her husband Andy continue to make ice cream slowly, one batch at a time. Each flavor is inspired by the seasons and crafted with local ingredients from small farms throughout South Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Each week organic cream from grass-fed cows is brought in from Seven Stars Farm in Chester County. Combined with free-range eggs from Sandy Ridge Farm and just enough sugar, this forms the custard base that defines Weckerly’s Ice Cream. Every flavor is built with a unique recipe and is made completely from scratch, never using a pre-made mix. This means that fresh heirloom blueberries can be their brightest; the changing varieties of mint each have their moment to shine; and all the while we never lose touch of the comforting golden cream.

Harvest Market now carries a handful of seasonal varieties of Weckerly’s Ice Cream Sandwiches. Located in our dessert freezer, and depending on the time of year, you will find flavors like:

  • The classic Black & White Sandwich, on chocolate chip cookies
  • Meadow Mint, featuring local organic mint with dark chocolate sea salt fudge, on chocolate cookies
  • The Rhurbarbarian, with local rhubarb butter and buttermilk ice cream, on soft honey grahams
  • Local Wildflower Honey and Lavender ice cream, on chewy chocolate cookies
