The University of Delaware’s UDairy Creamery is opening its first off-campus location this spring at 815 N. Market St. in Wilmington. Students from UD’s Associate in Arts Program will operate the UDairy Creamery Market—making the ice cream on site from locally sourced milk, serving customers, supervising the storefront and developing the marketplace into a sustainable business.
In addition to UDairy’s ice cream products, items produced by UD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources—like honey and wool blankets—will be available for purchase. A farm-to-table menu will also include burgers, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, salads and other items straight from the university’s organic garden.

The location is adjacent to Buccini/Pollin Group’s proposed Chelsea Plaza project that would demolish the neighboring building to create an outdoor plaza on Market Street. The plaza would open up to Shipley Street and to the Residences at Midtown Park that, upon completion, will deliver more than 500 parking spaces, 200 luxury apartments and additional retail.
The grand opening date of the Market Street location is yet to be determined, but it will be sometime in late spring. The grand opening event will include a block party celebration with prizes, entertainment and free ice cream.
