New Vendor Alert: Pleasant Pops!

This season, the Ballston Farmers Market returns with your favorite farmers and bakers, like Great Harvest Bread Company and Baguette Republic. And introducing a new face in Welburn Square--Pleasant Pops!

After experimenting with flavors in the kitchen for a year, Pleasant Pops sold their first pop in July 2010 and now have over 40 flavors of Mexican-inspired paletas, all of which are original recipes made from locally sourced fresh fruit, veggies, herbs and dairy. Now you can find Pleasant Pops at the Ballston Farmers Market and visit their truck, “Big Poppa,” (follow them on twitter @pleasantpops for locations), around the District.

Let's give Pleasant Pops a big Ballston welcome come Thursday, May 26th! Their fruit-filled ice pops will be the perfect pick-me-up this summer.
