About Ruby Jewel
Lisa Herlinger pioneered locally made artisan ice cream when she debuted her homemade Ruby Jewel Ice Cream sandwiches in 2004 at the Portland Farmers’ Market. Made with the Pacific Northwest’s bounty of fresh dairy, seasonal berries, nuts and herbs, the small-batch, handcrafted ice cream captivated ice cream lovers in the Pacific Northwest. Sister Becky Burnett soon joined the company and together the passionate duo put down their culinary roots in Portland, Ore. and set out to expand their ice cream company committed to using the highest quality ingredients from Northwest farmers and artisan ingredient producers.
A decade later, Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches and pints are still sold at local farmers markets and also available in select west coast grocers from Seattle to San Francisco including New Seasons Market, Whole Foods Market, Andronico’s Community Markets and Zupan’s. The two Ruby Jewel Scoop Shops in Portland, Ore. offer a tantalizing assortment of ice cream treats, homemade candy and toppings. A new production kitchen is opening in Portland, Ore. in summer of 2015 to bring more locally made artisan ice cream to stores nationwide.
Ruby Jewel Scoop Shops are located at 3713 N. Mississippi Ave., Portland, Ore. 97227 and 428 SW 12th Ave., Portland, Ore. 97205. Stay in touch with Ruby Jewel on Facebook and Twitter and visit www.rubyjewel.com for daily ice cream flavors and retail grocery locations.
