Local Entrepreneurs Launch Popsicle Biz
The demand for local food has inspired many New York entrepreneurs to form niche businesses that make food using local ingredients. These new businesses range from makers of candy and honey wine to purveyors of pickles and other pickled produce.
Here’s one small business I recently wrote about for the New York Daily News that emerged from a desire to make a popular treat local. The company — People’s Pops — makes popsicles from seasonal fruit bought at the Greenmarket at Union Square.
