“We need more ice cream moments:” New shop sells homemade sweets, looks to bring back good feels


CAMBRDIGE, Md.- Cambridge is now home to a new, unique sweet shop paying homage to a historic figure.

Harriet’s Homemade Ice Cream and Cakes celebrated its soft opening this weekend, located right next door to the Harriet Tubman Museum.

We’re told many of the recipes include all natural ingredients and have been passed down from generations of family members.

Other sweet treats include one of Tubman’s favorite deserts, the strawberry shortcake.

Owner’s tell us it’s also a celebration of new beginnings for the revitalization of Race Street. “We have to grow the businesses and develop relationships with the community. So it’s a lot going on here in Cambridge and we want to be a part of it,” Owner Javenna Smith-Myrieckes said.

“It’s just trying to bring back good feelings, and enjoy the moment. Even if it’s just an ice cream, we need more ice cream moments.”

Owner’s also tell 47ABC the shop was visited by Tubman’s great niece over the weekend.

Vegan and gluten-free menu options will available soon.

The shop is located at 428 Race Street in Cambridge, MD.
