Two new vendors join 2nd Street Market’s lineup



Established vendors at 2nd Street Market have one sweeet and one savory new neighbor just in time for the holiday shopping season.

The market announced two new prepared food vendors since the end of Oct. — HomeStyle Thai Bistro and I Heart Ice Cream. Both additions were made just as the market is preparing to expand its hours for the holidays.

The market located at 600 E. Second St. in downtown Dayton is extending its hours to include Fridays starting Nov. 26. The 2nd Street Market will be open Fridays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition to adding Friday hours, 2nd Street Market will offer special shopping days, workshops and events throughout the holiday season.

“Experience Dayton’s first ‘rolled ice cream’ concept. A technique originating in Thailand, rolled ice cream is created by taking sweet, liquid ice cream batter and pouring it onto a cold plate. Once frozen, it is scraped off with a metal hand tool and deposited into a cup with any number of ingredients,” posted 2nd Street Market in a Facebook announcement.

I Heart Ice Cream, owned by Daytonians Liz and Danny Cortes, rolled onto the Dayton foodie scene this spring.

“Rolled ice cream is a little bit creamier (than traditional ice cream) and obviously it’s more fun because you get to watch it being made,” Liz said. “But other than that, it tastes like a lot like regular ice cream. When you’re chopping and mixing it, science is happening and all that fun stuff. You’re creating air pockets and it makes it fluffy and creamy.”

Also new to the market, HomeStyle Thai Bistro owners Nopp and Tong Mangmeesub are bringing a variety of Vietnamese and Thai cuisine “just like their Grandmothers used to make.”

In addition to a variety of authentic menu items, customers can get a rice combo deal for $10.50 or $11 — pick two or three entrees over rice. Thai Bistro also offers chicken pho noodle soup and vegan pho noodle soup.

Wow!! What an AWESOME first day @ 2nd Street Market! We launched our new bubble waffles and man… they were a hit! If you...
