I Heart Ice Cream’s last weekend at 2nd Street Market in Dayton will be June 28 through June 30.

“The 2nd Street Market graciously welcomed us into their family in the fall of 2021. Since then, we have made lifelong connections and friendships that will forever hold dear to our hearts,” a June 5 Facebook post stated. “Although the decision was extremely hard, we have decided to retire our vendor booth and focus more on our new location as well as public and private food truck events.”

Liz Cortes, who owns the business with her husband, Danny, said they are gearing up to open July 1 at 9 N. Williams St. in Dayton’s Wright Dunbar District.

The Thai-inspired rolled ice cream business will continue to serve rolled ice cream, milkshakes and bubble waffles. They have plans to add additional menu items including boba teas.

I Heart Ice Cream will have longer hours of operation compared to their current hours at 2nd Street Market. They also hope to host special events.

“We are beyond grateful to have been a part of a Dayton staple over the past few years and have learned a ton about running a location,” the post said. “We are excited at how far we have come and owe a lot of it to our 2nd Street Market Family.”
