Pizza And Ice Cream In Downtown Ellicott City; Top Of My To-Do List -- If I Can Work Around Nap
River House Pizza is Nathan Sowers' mobile wood-fired oven that turns the courtyard near the Main Street parking lot into an outdoor pizza restaurant. For several years, they have served one of the highlights of the monthly market.
Now, that monthly market has become the weekly Ellicott City Old Town Market -- every Saturday offering music, farmers stands and more. Check out their Facebook page for hours and details.
At the same time, Sowers has expanded River House to Friday lunchtime (11:30-2) and all day Saturday and Sunday (11:30-7). He has also re-opened the ScoopAHHdeedo ice cream shop that operated down the row for a few years, but I think was shuttered for the last one or two. The scoop shop will be open Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 7 pm.
I've been remiss writing up the expansion. I keep wanting to go. We really loved the BrickNFire mobile pizza oven that operates across the river at the Breadery in Oella. Now you can get pizza and the Taharka Brothers ice cream.
Have people been to the weekly Old Town Market? What do you recommend? This is now on my list -- waiting for a Saturday when I can get Lil' Chow down there before or after nap. For a real report, check out Katie's post updated in 2014 on the Cupcake RN blog.
You can make real fun all weekend in downtown Ellicott City. On top of the pizza and the Saturday market, one of the highlights is the weekly movies shown outdoors by the Wine Bin. Check out their schedule on their site to see titles starting on May 22.
