DavePops moves to the Midwest

DavePops has packed up its popsicle cart and moved to Michigan. Proprietor Dave Feldpausch, the one-man show making and selling the creamier-than-dairy vegan frozen treats, made the announcement on the DavePops Facebook page on April 2. It is disappointing news for Sacramentans who look forward to spotting his colorful cart at the Oak Park and Carmichael farmers markets every spring and summer to indulge in a DavePop or sugar-free LukePop. But Feldpausch said via email, “Moving to the Midwest allows me to … make DavePops better, plus find ways to mass produce rather than make them by hand as I do now”—and this hopefully means getting them distributed to Sacramento. Feldpausch will be selling his goods in St. Johns, the “heart of dairy country,” by mid-April. He said his goal is to make nondairy ice cream better, available to everyone and affordable. Best of luck, DavePops!
