Suzy’s Pops: Culinary Arts, Studio 2060
Suzy’s Pops supplies Huntsville with gourmet ice pops made right here at Lowe Mill. They pride themselves on using fresh, local ingredients, using fruit grown by local farmers here in North Alabama. Owner Suzy Naumann first offered her ice pops at Greene Street Market to celebrate local produce. They were an instant hit, and she started selling the pops regularly at markets and events. With demand continuing to grow, she decided to open shop permanently at Lowe Mill. Suzy’s Pops offers a variety of flavors, from standards like strawberry and chocolate to more exotic flavors, like mango habañero and ginger lemongrass. You can also find seasonal treats that vary depending on what local farmers are growing.
Suzy says it’s satisfying to hand someone something that makes them happy. If you doubt her love for what she does, pick a flavor- the proof is in the pops! Look for Suzy’s Pops at the end of the North Wing, right beside the gallery in Studio 2060 at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.
I started selling pops in the summer of 2011 at the Greene Street Market in downtown Huntsville when a dear friend and I brought a cooler of Raspberry Hibiscus, Key Lime Pie and Peach Basil ice pops as part of a free food demonstration to shoppers at the market. The next week we were back as a business with a tent, a freezer and small batches of ice pops for a crowd of happy customers.
My mission at Suzy’s Pops is to produce gourmet ice pops from the freshest local ingredients, an ample portion of enthusiasm and a soupçon of mama love. Once you try Suzy’s Gourmet Market Ice Pops you’ll never say “I want a red one” again. Instead you’ll be raving about the Blueberry Yin/Yang, Orange Campari, Watermelon Rosemary, Pear Riesling, Rainbow and Wormy Apple pops, just to name a few! When you buy Suzy’s Pops you’re helping to support local farmers, too. I’m proud to get much of our produce from Champion Farms in Falkville and Scott’s Orchard in Hazel Green, among others. I love North Alabama and want to support its growers.
I’m very proud have my kitchen and retail shop in historic Lowe Mill. My studio is in the North Hall, Suite 2060. If you turn left when you enter the North Hall just follow the red line to my door at the end of the hall! The space is a former science lab, so I’ve done my best to celebrate the laboratory in the way I’ve set up the space. In typical Huntsville style, our bumper stickers say “Suzy’s Pops– it’s not rocket science– it’s pop science!”
