Ruby Jewel's Neapolitan Motif

Ruby Jewel will be opening the doors to their new store this week; becoming one the 50+ businesses in Oregon who have launched from Portland Farmers Market. This weekend, June 10, Ruby Jewel will be open for a sneak preview during the Mississippi Street Fair.

With Permission, from Ruby Jewel’s Newsletter:

In mid-June, my sister and business partner, Becky, and I signed a lease for our first scoop shop, located at 3713 N Mississippi Ave.  We’ve been dreaming about creating a Ruby Jewel Scoop Shop for a long time. Portland has great gelato, but since ice cream is our calling and you’ve been asking, we decided it was time to expand our offering beyond the realm of cookies and ice cream…

…we’re busy transforming the space into our own version of the perfect ice cream parlor, complete with a gorgeous custom paint job. From the Neapolitan (plus mint) palette to the amazing reclaimed wood tables and counters Tim Lundholm created for us, going out for ice cream at Ruby Jewel Scoop Shop will be a special experience. We’ll offer our artisan, small batch ice cream with 100% homemade cones, candy toppings and sauces for made-to-order cones and sundaes. Plus, we’ll feature our famous Ruby Jewel cookies for custom building your own ice cream sandwich.

-Lisa and Becky

The store opens for regular hours on July 15 –  11 am to 11 pm Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 am until midnight on Friday and Saturday. To read more about the new Ruby Jewel store , follow this link.
