An ice cream company founded by a Tufts graduate in 2013 officially opens its storefront in Somerville on Tuesday. Tipping Cow is the work of Anna Gaul, who has been selling her homemade ice creams at farmers markets and in grocery stores but will now have a space to call her own.
The Tipping Cow shop opens at 415 Medford St. at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 3 and will offer cones of ice cream, coffee, pastries, and pints to go, according to a post on the store's Facebook page.
The nut-free ice creamery launched a Kickstarter campaign last August to raise funds for the shop, which took over the former Sammy's Market & Deli space. Tipping Cow is known for its inventive flavors like Earl Grey and lemon, vanilla buttermilk, and dark chocolate sea salt.
Tipping Cow will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Pints are also stocked at Formaggio Kitchen, South End Buttery, Whole Foods in Medford, American Provisions, and a few other shops in the area and at farmers markets.
