Farfalle Italian Market & Cafe in Concord installed a freezer display case and now offers creamy Italian Bindi gelati and sorbetti (6 ounces for $3.75, 10 ounces for $5.50). Bindi, a well-respected brand, made its name with preservative-free flavors — and mastered a freezing process for the best consistency. The Milan company once delivered the icy treats on bicycles, and now uses express service from a New Jersey plant. Flavors are traditional rather than trendy — 31 gelati include hazelnut, vanilla, chocolate, vanilla bean; 17 sorbetti include lemon, mango, coconut, and blood orange. Farfalle is offering four gelati and two sorbetti at a time, always rotating, scooped into scalloped, green Italian cups that are environmentally green as well. Farfalle Italian Market & Cafe, 26 Concord Crossing, Concord, 978-369-2900, www.farfalleitalianmarket.com.
