Last fall Tuck Shop replaced People’s Pops in the Chelsea Market, but Nathalie Jordi tells us she and her partners will return to the market this Friday. From April till October, look for the stand made from pop sticks (and of course the big ol’ block of ice) near the 15th Street entrance, by Jacques Torres and Lucy’s Whey. Just like last year, the stand will celebrate its opening by giving away shave ice (normally $2.50) on Friday starting at 10 a.m. (last year, 150 pounds of ice disappeared in about five hours), or you can plunk down $3.50 for one of the pop flavors below. The farm-to-freezer enterprise will also return to the Brooklyn Flea (they were back on the scene last weekend), the Amsterdam Market, and perhaps also the High Line (potential vendors are submitting their proposals this week).

Opening flavors:
Blackberry & Sour Cherry
Plum, Yogurt & Tarragon
Plum & Blueberry
