DFW Central Market stores brought in 450 ice creams from all over the U.S. – and they’re all on sale right now

DFW Central Market stores are cooling off the summer with ice cream deals worth knowing.

From July 17 – 23, all of their ice cream pints, quarts and half-gallons — more than 40 brands and more than 450 different flavors — are twenty percent off. That’s a good time to try brands you’ve heard of or fell in love with like Lick, Ample Hills, Humphry Slocombe, Jeni’s, Graeter’s, McConnell’s Teo Premium Gelato, Howdy Homemade and Isle of Arran.

If you haven’t tried Central Market’s own label of gelato and ice cream, you really should; they are among the best.

During the weeklong event, individual stores will host tasting stations.
