Here’s some refreshing news— for just a month, People’s Pops will sell local, seasonal popsicles in Battery Park. Starting Monday, the pop-up will be across from 17 State Street, near Pearl Street, every weekday from 12:30 p.m. till supply runs out. The stand’s operators Nathalie Jordi, David Carrell, and Joel Horowitz are learning on the job (you can follow their adventures on their blog), so it’s uncertain how long it’ll take for the $3.50 pops to go (they currently sell about 1,000 each Saturday and Sunday at Brooklyn Flea). The debut lineup of flavors (which changes weekly) is fresh strawberry with a touch of rhubarb, fresh strawberry and organic cream, and super-sweet upstate rhubarb.
