To express their long-lasting commitment to making Downtown Frederick an even better place, The North Market Pop Shop has partnered with Key City Compost, a commercial composting and food waste collection service. All of their ice cream bowls, cups, and cutlery are made of compostable materials so that it’s possible to keep them out of the landfill – this allows for an increase in soil replenishment and also boosts the growth of local greenery within the Frederick community.

Key City Compost launched its services in 2017 and is Frederick's first residential and commercial composting service. According to, The City of Frederick is the landfill's biggest customer, with more than 1,700 tons of trash on a monthly basis. Key City Compost’s mission is to reduce the total atmospheric carbon, increase soil carbon, create jobs, and strengthen our local food system with high quality soil products through the diversion of food waste from landfills.

Whether it’s providing one of the largest selections of retro craft soda pop, serving ice cream flavors from awe-inspiring local creameries, or creating award-winning hot dogs and sloppy joes, The North Market Pop Shop is always trying to minimize their impact on the environment while maximizing their impact in the community.
