Welcome to the Frost River Marketplace!

We're excited to welcome two new businesses to the newly developed Frost River Marketplace which spans from 1900 to 1914 West Superior Street in the Lincoln Park Craft District.

Corktown Deli and Brews and Love Creamery Ice Cream Shop are proudly open for business this week

and are looking forward to their first great summer in the Neighborhood. They join Frost River Trading Co. and Damage Board Shop, who have been welcoming destination shoppers to the block for years.

Corktown is part of the Duluth Grill family of restaurants that include The Duluth Grill and OMC Smokehouse. The sandwich shop will offer smoked meats, sandwiches, salads, How Sweet it Is cakes, and side dishes in both take-out or dine-in offerings along with deli meats to-go and full catering for events.

Corktown is accessible via West Superior Street, or the back lot of the Frost River Marketplace.

Love Creamery is owned by Nicole Wilde and has been operating from an ice cream cart for the past several years. With the addition of the storefront and an espresso bar, the premium ice cream, sorbet, pastries, and cones will now be made right on site in a modern industrial kitchen.

Love Creamery is accessible via West Superior Street, as well as from within Frost River Trading Co. which has access from both West Superior St. and the back lot of the Frost River Marketplace.

As part of the ribbon-cutting ceremony, tours and samples were available on site, while owners and employees gave interviews and shared stories.

The new businesses join a growing ensemble of destination retail shops where customers are not only encouraged to shop small and choose local goods, but get the chance to see things being made and experience American craftsmanship first hand. At Frost River, we offer tours of the workshop where waxed canvas packs and bags are made each day. Bent Paddle Brewing Co. offers brewery tours and has a great new tap room. OMC Smokehouse fills the neighborhood with marvelous smells from the smoker in the back. Duluth Pottery is open with tours, classes, and clay cups, pots, and pottery for sale. The Duluth Folk School offers classes in old world crafts. And there’s more too!

Visitors can stop by any time, or book a walking tour with the Duluth Experience to visit the Neighborhood and get an inside look at good stuff being made.

Meet you in the Craft District!
