Lick’d • Find this gourmet popsicle stand at area farmers markets including: Downtown Farmers Market at Pioneer Park on Saturdays; Wheeler Farm Market on Sundays; Harvest Market at Pioneer Park on Tuesdays; South Towne Center on Thursdays; and Sugarhouse Farmers Market on Fridays.

Cost • $4 each, or two for $7

Shop talk • Tiffany Tomkinson initially started her own bakery, but she quickly switched gears when customers raved about these gourmet treats on a stick. The ice cream-based pops are flavored with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs — straight from the farmers market or garden — and sweetened with local honey. Each week there are new flavors depending on what’s in season. Favorite combinations including mango raspberry lime, peach rosemary and Tomkinson’s favorite, basil plum. "I dream about that one," she says.
