Grassroots Ice Cream

Location and contact

We know our ice cream shop is different from what most people are used to. We are an artisan ice cream shop. We experiment constantly with countless flavors always tweaking and improving. We use natural extracts, and real food to flavor our ice cream. We scoop 36 flavors at any one time and when one box runs out we put in another flavor. So some of our flavors may change 3 or 4 times a day! We love that. We never want to become the typical ice cream shop that scoops the exact same 15 flavors every day. Change is what we love and change makes us who we are...Grassroots Ice cream for the people.

By far the best ice cream I’ve had in MA or CT. Worth the drive & worth the wait in the summer too. This is the only ice cream I come back for

The ice cream here is above and beyond delicious. With interesting flavors and loaded with lots of goodies in the ice cream, you must try this place. You know when an ice cream place is great when it is busy in the middle of winter.

Excellent choices and flavors. You can taste a difference in their flavors compared to some places where the ice cream is rather generic. Parking, however, and ease of access to the tiny congested lot is not the best.

Stopped by passing thru to the airport and wow! This place has very unique flavors like grape nut and lemongrass coconut which I had and they are fantastic. Well worth the stop for ice cream that is one of a kind.

Great flavors, large servings and their waffle cones are the best!!! Cute outdoor area to sit and enjoy your ice cream; my son loves sitting in the gazebo and hanging out on the green.

The hot fudge sundaes are delicious!!! They have so many ice cream flavors to choose from everyone will find one. I love the different flavors they mix, they allow you to sample before ordering also. Prices are comparable to any other ice cream shop.
