About Half Pint

Half Pint Homemade Ice Cream has been selling made-from-scratch ice cream at local farmers markets and events since 2008. We use locally-sourced dairy and eggs in our ice cream and feature other local ingredients when possible. We are dedicated to providing a fresh high-quality product that will appeal to children and adults alike.

Half Pint Ice Cream started out with a tiny Cuisinart home ice cream maker and a dream. Owner and chief ice cream maker/scooper/lover, Cle Franklin, has been a huge fan of ice cream from a young age, even working at a local scoop shop in her hometown of Boston as a teenager. Upon moving to Seattle 12 years ago, she was surprised to find very little in the way of local ice cream offerings. Five years later, Half Pint Ice Cream was born. The first summer she set up shop at just two farmers markets and over the years we have grown and evolved, and now we can be found at eight farmers markets across the greater Seattle area.

We also love to do private events - everything from weddings to birthdays to corporate retreats. An ice cream cone adds a special element to any party.

Come be a kid again with Half Pint Homemade Ice Cream.


“Half pint ice cream is the best ice cream I've tasted in my entire life. It tastes right, it sits right in my belly, and it was worth every dollar.”
“I have loved Half Pint since my first taste at the old Broadway farmers market . Since then we’ve had many collaborations from organizing annual ice cream socials to get the next generation interested in Hanford cleanup, to my post-wedding ceremony celebration in Kubota Gardens.“
"Cle is a joy to work with and does more than make delicious ice cream, it’s about building relationships and having a positive presence in her community.“
"I had one bite of the Mocha Almond and I was a Half Pint that is."
