Red Wagon to open next week in the EMU basement

Red Wagon Creamery will open a new location on campus next Tuesday, Sept. 6, on the bottom floor of the EMU.

Red Wagon started as a pushcart that sold ice cream in Kesey Square back in 2011, but now operates out of a scoop shop in downtown Eugene and runs Oregon’s smallest dairy processing plant. The creamery focuses on creating ice cream using seasonal ingredients sourced from the Willamette Valley, as opposed to processed ingredients.

The EMU invited the local company to open an ice cream store on campus after it was favored highly by polled students.

Red Wagon’s location in the EMU will carry the two flavors that were most requested by University of Oregon students: Saturday Morning, a cereal-and-milk-flavored ice cream, and Tracktown Brekkie a honey-flavored frozen yogurt with housemade granola.

The new location will also be participating in the upcoming Flock Party on September 23, during which it’ll trade free buttons and stickers in exchange for an Instagram follow.
