EDIT: Marie Mercado is the co-owner of Greenery Creamery and shared this statement in response to our write-up, “It’s not just me behind this project! I’m a co-owner and it’s the magic of the whole team that is bringing this project to life.”
Mercado confirmed with Bungalower via email that she will be opening a sister concept to Greenery Creamery called, Sampaguita (Instagram | Website) which will serve her take on Filipino desserts using flavors like ube, mango, pandan, and jackfruit, in both vegan and dairy options.
Sampaguita, or Jasminum sambac, is a type of jasmine and is the national flower of the Philippines, and symbolizes purity, simplicity, and strength.
The concept started as a pop-up and will continue with periodic pop-up events in the new space up until they open the new location by late summer/early autumn, so they can test new recipes like the “halo halo” funnel cake shown below.
