Chill Out

A little scoop of Italy, where you least expect it



he most authentic Italian gelato shop is far from the North End. How can you tell? Just try the affogato in the casual, parlor-like atmosphere of Dolce Freddo Gelato. This shop has a paralyzing choice of 120 flavors of gelato and sorbet, made in the Methuen flagship store by owner Andrea Rossetto and driven the same day to the Newburyport location. It imports not only many of its ingredients from Rossetto’s native Italy, but also its machinery and eco-friendly cups, spoons, and packaging. Not in the mood for gelato? Dolce Freddo also sells Italian cookies and pastries, and even gourmet Italian coffee and espresso drinks. You’ll never go back to ice cream. You may never even go back to the North End. Vallejo



Market Square was once crowded with distilleries that used imported West Indian molasses to make rum, which was then exported.
