Get your shaved ice from the new Kona Ice shaved ice truck at the Danville farmers market at Railroad & Prospect Ave. on Saturdays. They will be there at least through April. Check for updates on their Facebook page here. As you can see in the above photo, you add your own syrup near the bottom left of the truck. You can select multiple flavors but they don’t have straws, only spoons so eat it before it melts!
Kona Ice Shaved Ice treats contain no artiﬁcial sweeteners, no high fructose corn syrup and no peanut derivatives. They are fat free gluten free, dairy free, and lactose free. Sugar free, dye free and Kosher certiﬁed products are available upon request.
In December we learned about a new cupcake and ice cream shop called Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery coming to Danville Square where zpizza used to be and their signage is now up so hopefully they’ll be opening soon… Check out their menu here. According to their FAQ, they will also offer pupcakes, “made with carrot cake, pumpkin, soybean oil, peanut butter and buttercream. Our signature Pupcake is then topped with a real Milkbone training treat!”

A new DIY workshop studio called AR Workshop is opening in Danville where Live Happy Paper Crafts used to be. Their grand opening launch party will be held on May 19th to, “get a tour of our new workshop space, check out the sample projects, and shop our retail boutique featuring home decor gifts and accessories”. There will also be “giveaways, raffles, and promotions”. Register here and check out their workshop calendar here. Although other locations are BYOB it looks like the Danville location will allow small snacks or appetizers to be brought in but no alcohol, for now at least.
Register for a DIY workshop to create on-trend home decor from raw materials such as wood signs, canvas pillows, wood framed signs, bottle openers and more.
