Sunshine Creamery Opens for The Season!

A sure sign of Spring in Rhode Island is when the seasonal ice cream shops throughout the state and over the border start to open and begin serving up their tasty sweets. After a long New England winter, there is much anticipation as these summertime destinations slowly trickle in with their season debut during early to late spring.

Even in a small state like RI, each community has their own go-to iconic ice cream shop. Narraganset has Brickley’s, Cumberland has the Ice Cream Machine and Tiverton has Gray’s to name just a few. In Rumford, we have the Sunshine Creamery! And on Saturday, April 13th, the family friendly hot spot with the cool treats slid open their walk-up service windows and welcomed the 2024 season!

Sunshine Creamery has been a staple in Rumford, RI for decades. The vintage style ice cream stand is known for their wide variety of flavors that includes traditional favorites along with unique & creative offerings. For example, they closed out the 2023 fall season with their delicious Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream flavors. The latter worked perfectly in the related Pumpkin Pie Sundae that was layered with hot caramel and topped with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon!

Speaking of flavors, the 2024 opening weekend featured a “Coffee Fudge Brownie” ice cream flavor, comprised of coffee ice cream with a fudge swirl and brownie pieces! If you get there in time, the favor should still be available. You can learn of Sunshine Creamery’s ongoing “New Flavor Alerts” by following their Facebook page.

From Scoops, Sundaes, Shakes, Splits and more, you can count on Sunshine Creamery for a generous portion of fresh, quality ice cream at a fair price. Service at the order and pick up windows is always attentive and friendly by the young staff that seems to always be serving with a smile.

Ice cream is also available in Pint and Quart containers to be enjoyed at home. Several picnic tables are available on the property along with plenty of parking.

Sunshine Creamery is located at 305 North Broadway in Rumford, RI. The current hours are 2:00 – 8:30pm Monday – Thursday, 12:00pm – 9:00pm Friday – Saturday and 12:00pm – 8:30pm on Sunday. Sunshine Creamery updates and specials can be found on their Facebook page @ Hope to see you there!!
