Since launching at the Brooklyn Flea, People’s Pops (creators of the Cornsicle) have set up shop in Battery Park and the Amsterdam Market, and now they’re getting their first brick-and-mortar store. Actually, it’s not exactly brick-and-mortar — it’s more like a fourteen-foot counter made from Popsicle sticks and glue. You can find it seasonally (and if all goes well, year-round) starting tomorrow at Chelsea Market, near the new entrance on 15th Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues. Here’s the opening menu — shave ice is free tomorrow until all 150 pounds of it runs out.

Popsicles - $3.50
Raspberry & Cream
Blackberry & Lemon Verbena
Rhubarb & Ginger
Rhubarb & Star Anise
Blackberry & Sour Cherry

Shave Ice - $2.50
Organic lemon & mint
