We all scream for ice cream t hi s week­end, ap­par­ently.

Chat­tanooga Mar­ket is also host­ing an ice-cream fundraiser. One of the mar­ket’s most pop­u­lar sum­mer­time events, the Ice Cream So­cial is set for Sun­day, June 10, at the mar­ket in First Ten­nessee Pavil­ion, 1826 Carter St. Mar­ket hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Ad­mis­sion is free, but a $6 ticket is re­quired to re­ceive sam­ple scoops from par­tic­i­pants Brusters, Clump­ies Ice Cream, Milk & Honey, May­field Dairy Farms and The Ice Cream Show.

All pro­ceeds from sales will ben­e­fit pro­grams of the Cham­b­liss Cen­ter for Chil­dren.

“Two awards will be given: one for best pure fla­vor and one for best fla­vor with in­clu­sions,” says Katie Har­bi­son, Cham­b­liss Cen­ter vice pres­i­dent.

Each of the f ive ice­cream ven­dors will sub­mit an ice cream into each cat­e­gory. Peo­ple pur­chas­ing the ice- cream tick­ets can vote on their fa­vorites in each cat­e­gory, she says.

Last sum­mer’s Ice Cream So­cial net­ted $5,300 for the agency, says Har­bi­son.

Mar­ket spokes­woman Melissa Si­ra­gusa says “sum­mer pro­duce is pour­ing in with peaches, straw­ber­ries, and toma­toes.” Sum­mer veg­eta­bles com­ing into the mar­ket in­clude squash, c u c u mb e r s , snap peas and more.

In ad­di­tion to the fresh pro­duce, mar­ket­go­ers will find meats, cheeses, spices, fresh flow­ers and orig­i­nal crafts and art be­ing sold by the mar­ket’s 200 ven­dors.
