Late last week, Essex Crossing developers Delancey Street Associates dribbled out the latest vendor to sweeten up the Market Line.

New York institution Ample Hills Creamery has signed up to sling scoops of their local ice cream at the billion-dollar mega-development, set to debut later this year.

“Dedicated to storytelling through their creative flavors, homemade mix-ins and vibrant packaging, Ample Hills Creamery makes their ice cream the old-fashioned way with flavors that inspire nostalgia,” the PR swill states. “Over the last seven years, Ample Hills has opened locations across Brooklyn, Manhattan, and even further afield in Jersey City.
