Main Lake Market, Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey
Lake Hopatcong in northwest New Jersey is a popular lake for both boaters and swimmers. It has several restaurants that boaters can dock at and enjoy. For years I was amazed that there were no ice cream shops on the lake.
– and then the Main Lake Market appeared. This shop has two floors. The first floor offers a deli, boating accessories, expensive fake spilled beverages and expensive sunglasses. But the top floor is the place to visit – in addition to selling interesting toys and plaques, here is the ice cream source. Their ice cream is homemade by Jefferson Dairy (I already know how good that is!). In this case the ‘location, location, location’ adage fits. A great location and great ice cream – is there a better combination?
